This is the best I could dig right now at the subject.
And MSDN article https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/services/the-complete-service-sample
Looks much the same.

All the internet flooded with useless "pick 'service application' template in
Visual Studio" crap, hiding the actually useful information.
May be some more time spent in Google with control signal names reveal even
older (== more useful) articles.
Don't have that time right now, sorry. :(
