      Description

      Currently, the ruby process we use to make a service for puppet ( [daemon.rb|https://github.com/puppetlabs/puppet/blob/master/ext/windows/service/daemon.rb] ) makes use of Win32 gems to create a windows service.

       

      These gems are pretty out-of-date, and we should update puppet to work directly with FFI and the windows API to create the service.
