Run complied script as windows service (must run when no users logged on)

Recommended Posts

newkidontheblock

I'm an IT guy for a midsize bussiness and we just recieved alot of new computers, of which I'm trying to have a script of mine run on the computer as a service. I've seen alot of threads about it, but the examples are not really well worded. The main thing about this is having it run when nobody is logged in as employee's are required to logoff the workstation. Another after thought, I was thinking about adding some code to detect when there is cursor movement to send a TCP network message, I'm not sure how this would work since I know service's are not supposedto interact really with the desktop.

Any help is gratefully appreciated!

newkidontheblock,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

But please pay attention to where you post - the "Developer Chat" section where you started this thread is not for general support questions. I have moved the thread for you, but would ask you to be more careful in future. ;)

In the Example Scripts section of this forum you'll find a >Services UDF. Maybe a good starting point.

Water/Melba, just for my own curiosity, I see reference to another service UDF in the FAQ that appears to be much older: '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>>

edit ** did not have the link as a link ... thx for posting to the Wiki.
