Non windows XP users have to run this to work locally. blah blah blah. you know this. =)
C:\CFusionMX\bin\CFSTART.BAT
Windows XP users, it runs as a service in the background.

Is there a way to make this run as a service on a windows 98 machine?  Or am i doomed with the task of having to run it everytime i want to work locally?

i tried putting it int he registry here:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices
as
value name:ColdFusionMXStart
value data:C:\CFusionMX\bin\CFSTART.BAT

any ideas guru's?

Place the entry under

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

Win98 does not have 'real' services, actually it lacks any support except allowing processes to survice a logoff.

bah,  that folder just runs the file on start up.
i'd like it to run behind the scenes... almost like a virus runs. =)
If you can't run it as a service, how about as a process  (even with win98 u can Ctrl+alt+del to see your running processes)

That's all you can get with Win98

>>If you can't run it as a service, how about as a process  

There is no difference between a service and any other process on Win98

Hi phileoca,

I have a solution, upgrade to XP. 98 is like over 5 years old now and the XP or even WIN2k is a much better development platform. Once on these platforms, you can install all sorts of dev services, like IIS, SQL Server, Crystal RAS, etc, etc.

I really think you should consider it.

You do need to upgrade.

Windows98 does not run services:
http://livedocs.macromedia.com/coldfusion/6.1/htmldocs/configu7.htm

A lot of the functions of ColdFusion available in later versions of Windows do not work in Windows 98:

My link shows Macromedia corroborating the fact. But more importantly running ColdFusion on Window 98 and ME does not offer all the functionality given by Win2k and later editions, so Win98 is not the ideal development platform.

Thanks for all the advice.   However, i really don't like win XP. And atm, the company won't buy me a new pc (yeah this one is slower than beans, but it's hooked up to T1).  And as far as me and CF, i'm only doing minor things ATM.
