Running compiled script as Service

Recommended Posts

I have a problem running my compiled script as a service in Windows XP.

I've used INSTSRV SRVANY to create the service and I've also tried SC command to create the service.

I've read the FAQ and checked that I have the Interact parameter configured for my service.

The problem is that the service will not start correctly, I get an error saying that the service did not respond in time.

Any ideas ?

Thanx Ptrex, problem solved !

I actually needed a way to install the .exe file as a service from within another program and thanks to your GUI I got it right.

I ended up doing it like this on Windows XP:

From the command prompt (Inact is the name of my service)

sc create Inact binPath= srvany.exe DisplayName= "Your text here"

sc description Inact "App description here"

sc config Inact start= auto type= own type= interact

And then fix the registry

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Parameters\Application\, "REG_SZ", "C:\Program\Inact\Inact.exe"

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Parameters\AppDirectory, "REG_SZ", C:\Program\Inact

And finally start the service

sc start Inact
