Device Hub: Turn it into a service

Love the new device hub and the world of possibilities it offers.  It needs to run as an optional Windows Service.  Otherwise as businesses start relying on it, unless the end user is logged in, it will fail.  As a service it will be bullet proof.

    It is somewhat expected the user will be logged in when using DeviceHub with all the local devices like USB Scale. The other benefit of running as an app is the UI for tracing and system tray icon to indicate any errors. You can run it as a service if you want to by following instructions at https://www.howtogeek.com/50786/using-srvstart-to-run-any-application-as-a-windows-service/ or using a product like AlwaysUp.
