Making An Autoit Executeable Run As A Windows Service

7 posts in this topic

This is probably more a windows question then an AutoIt question, but you guys rock, so I hope you can Help. I wrote an AutoIt Script that I want to run as a windows service to accomplish certain tasks without any users being logged in specifically. I wrote a server program in Java, and I wrote an AutoIt script to launch and configure it. So I'd like it the be able to start and run immidately when the computer starts without anyone needing to login. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Search the forum. It has quite many references on how to do this. I have found XYNTService found on www.codeproject.com very handy.

search for nssm (it watches the exe and not itself)

nssm is a service helper which doesn't suck. srvany and other service helper ... With nssm you know that if a service says it's running, it really is. ...

PLEASE tell me why whenever I run an application, it opens the DOS or CMD.exe window, and immediately close before I can even read what it says. Do I have my CMD.exe configured wrong or something???

hi,

try adding the "pause" or "sleep" function in your codes just after the DOS command codes. IN that way, you can see what the DOS window actually displays.


mouse not found....scroll any mouse to continue.
