[Freeswitch-users] Running FreeSwitch as Windows Service

I am building FreeSwitch through VS 2010 (not VC++ Express) and I generate FreeSwitchConsole.exe as a console application. No FreeSwitch.exe is generated.
FreeSwitchConsole runs fine as an application but I need to run the SW as a service.
I installed Freeswitch as a local service that calls FreeSwitchConsole.exe, and this is the output of "sc qc FreeSWITCH":
C:\FreeSWITCH>sc qc FreeSWITCH
[SC] QueryServiceConfig SUCCESS
TYPE : 10 WIN32_OWN_PROCESS
START_TYPE : 2 AUTO_START
ERROR_CONTROL : 1 NORMAL
BINARY_PATH_NAME : C:\FreeSWITCH\FreeSwitchConsole.exe
TAG : 0
DISPLAY_NAME : FreeSWITCH
SERVICE_START_NAME : LocalSystem
Trying to start FreeSwitch as a service results in Error 1053 Timeout - Event Viewer is : Timeout (30000 milliseconds) waiting for the FreeSWITCH service to connect.
C:\FreeSWITCH>net start freeswitch
The service is not responding to the control function.
Is it because I am trying to start a console application as a service?
Do I need to have a FreeSwitch.exe and if so, how do I build it? Do I need to create a Windows Service wrapper project?
I tried using winserv (supposed to start console apps as service), with same result:
C:\FreeSWITCH>..\tools\winserv\winserv start FreeSwitch
ERROR 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.
What am I missing?
