how can I start a daemon process at boot time? (it's not a service)
Posted on 2004-08-02
I have a program that we have been running from the cmd prompt. It is a daemon process, that does not terminate (meaning we do not want it to terminate). However when the user that starts the process logs out, the process is killed by Windows.
I would like the process to start at boot time, and never terminate, until shutdown.
I konw about
Local Computer Policy >User Configuration >Windows Settings >Scripts
in the Group Policies, but when I tried that my terminal services remote desktop did not come up for about 20 minutes, after which my process was not running.
I should mention that right now I need this for a Window 2003 server, however I also need it to work on a Window 2000 server.
Thanks in advance for your help.
