That is because (at least up till Delphi XE) a Delphi service application runs the
*GUI* processmessages loop (it uses unit forms for this).
Which, incidentally, also calls 'CheckSynchronize'.
A vanilla console application does not run a message loop, hence also in Delphi
does not have TTimer, thread synchroniszation and whatnot.
But now you found out yourself :)
