Running arbitrary command line exes as NT services
can this be done? I have a command line app (Instiki) that I want to run as a non-interactive NT service. Can this be done without a programming effort?
... it's ok when Mr. Muppet asks a questions. Somebody else would cause a flood of invectives.
I don't ask stupid questions.
Not stupid, perhaps, but still one to which STFW would be a perfectly appropriate answer.
One problem with running things as a service, is that they have their own invisible desktop. If some dialog box pops up, it hangs. If it is using the vb6 runtime to pop up a dialog box, all other vb apps will hang. There is a checkbox you can do to let the service use the logged in desktop.

Services should never interactive with the desktop.
