Debugging Windows Services with "Edit & Continue"

I needed to debug Windows Services. But I didn't like  suggested in multiple articles Debugger.Launch.
 
I was able
2. Add in my service project a Reference to AndersonImes.ServiceProcess.dll
3. Change in the Main() function
//ServiceBase.Run(ServicesToRun);
ServicesLoader.StartServices(ServicesToRun,true);
Note that  AutoStart boolean second parameter is very convenient for immediate start of debugging, in particular if you have only one service.
 
And all VS debugging features, including F5 and Edit&Continue are available.
