The second alpha release of LuaService is available at its
LuaForge page:

LuaService is a framework for writing a Windows Service
application in Lua, and also provides support installation,
removal, and control of the its service.

One goal of this project is to make it possible to write a new
service entirely in Lua. The framework supports require()-ing
any needed DLL modules, so it should be possible to bury windows
API complexities behind existing modules like LuaFileSystem,
LuaSockets, and similar.

Another goal is to provide a complete, working example of a non-
trivial windows service with adequate internal documentation. To
that end, the souce code is heavilly documented with Doxygen, and
extensive background and overview discussions are included.

I do feel obliged to add that it is lightly tested, alpha quality,
system level code for the present, so use with caution and all the
rest of the usual disclaimers apply...
