Is there a way to install it as Services

Is there a way to install one of your programs as Services?

microsoft's srvany.exe

To the best of my knowledge, there has not been enough development / community interest in building true console or service compile options into autoit. You can search the ideas lab for previous posts along these lines, and once you understand those either:

write the necessary au3 code from the latest publicly available source
come up w/ a new reason why this would be worth a developer's time to write and post it in the idea lab
offer lots of money /beer to a developer to beg a developer to write it..
use the srvany kludge
choose another development tool

Should you proceed in taking an au3 compiled app that you intend to run as a service , without service / console compile options:

remember, when you run w/o an attached console, some commands will not work...WinWaitActive() will never find any window, and msgbox / inputboxes w/ no timeouts will also wait forever....

This is of course, in addition to all the other ways your script could fail to perform as intended. :o

Reading the help file before you post... Not only will it make you look smarter, it will make you smarter.
