That article describes how to write a service. If you have an existing exe you want to run as a service then I'm sure if you google "run exe as service" you'll find some possible solutions. Note that not all exes can be run as services though, it depends what they do, eg do they show any any Windows or interact with the user? If so it won't work as a service.

If you have the code for the exe you could re-write the code so that it can be ran as a service using the article provided.
