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 :)
