Visual Studio: High Level Design?

Visual Studio: High Level Design?

Visual Studio: High Level Design?


I'm an experienced (old-school) programmer, trying to get to grips with Visual Studio 8 (or 10)
I want to write a VB program which comprises 3 elements; a Service to enter data into a Database, which can then be viewed in a Windows forms App.

Ideally, could I have one App with a local database, which includes the 'service' part in a separate thread which continues to run when the app is minimised to the task bar?

Or do I have to put these three components in 1 project, or three projects in a solution?

What are the relative merits from a VS point of view?

Any help would be much appreciated,

- Frink
