Run as a service

3 posts in this topic

I have an app that we need to run when nobody is logged on to this server. The problem is Task Scheduler isn't running the app unless we are logged on.

Is there a way to create an AutoIT file so it can run as a Service, and will run when nobody is logged on?

Thanks for any help or suggestions!!

There is sc.exe which you can use in the command prompt. (Ex: sc create ...)

You can download srvany.exe from Microsoft, which is what I normally do.

There are other service creation programs out there. Just do a Google search. I have used a couple others including runassvc and another whose name I cannot recall.

In fact, you could have probably answered your own question by searching on this forum rather than posting this question.
