My question is simple, and for those with time, probably easy to answer.  So earn a quick 100 points and help me here.

I am running NT Server 4.0 on a Dual Pentium Pro 200 system with 256 megs of RAM.  This is the intranet server here at work.

We have some java programs that require server side control to function (directory mapper, etc).  Right now, I have the java programs run when I login, but I don't want to have to be logged in.  If the server crashes, I can reboot it remotely, but logging the machine in is a problem.

I know this can be done, but I can't remember how.  All I want to do is have these batch files run as a system service.

Use the AT scheduler as an administrator.  Don't forget to enable it in your service control panel.

The correct way is to use the srvany.exe program from the Rersourcekit. You will find a txt.file which explains the correct way to implement it. If you have any questions to feel free to ask me.

There is also the free tool AutoExNT that lets you start a batch-file called autoexnt.bat where you in turn can do whatever u want.
