Hi!

i've installed a program called vu_brief for synchrionizing via ftp two application servers, but i need it that this program will be always running in the background. I've tried to put it at startup menu and like a sheduled time at Startup Time, but it didn't work. It only works when i log on into win2k.

Can u help me plz? Idea is got it running like a windows service, the ftp synchronization will always work.

Thanks in advance.

use the SRVANY.EXE tool available with the Resource Kit. This will allow you to run the program as a service.

i've installed my program as a service with instsrv.exe like microsoft tells in the link u gave me, but when i try to start service from service manager it tells me:

Could not start Vu_Brief service service on local computer

Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

Did you use SRVANY too?

NOTE: To verify that the service was created correctly, check the registry to verify that the ImagePath value under
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\service name is set to point to SRVANY.EXE.
