Hi folks,

just one short question.

what is again the syntax for running an application as Win2k service, like running it without Logging-in into the machine?

like when i turned on the Auto Remote Access Connection Manager, a workstation going to surf the web, it automatically triggers the server to dial-up my modem, i find it pretty neat. now how do i make my:

1. winamp run like that? =)

2. my Half-life dedicated server to run like that. =)

3. Load my saved Performance monitor and be able to view it on a win2k pro machine without logging in as an administrator but as a user with that priveldge, could that be possible?

As no user-environment variables have yet been declared when AutoExNT runs at system startup, you must
use full path names. If you need a service to be running, such as the Server or Schedule service, include
a net start service command at the beginning of your Autoexnt.bat file before you start running a dependent

There also a program called Firedaemon ( which will setup any type service you want with a short amount of commands. Works great since i run a Counter-Strike Server on my win2k machine.
