Hi,

I have an executable located at C:\Program Files\Logger\Logger.exe

I want to add it to the services at the startup. How can I do it in Windows XP?

Thanks

Maybe you what just to run it at the startup ?
Then you simply need to create link or copy logger.exe to
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
or to another drive letter if your "Documents and Settings" is not on C:

G'day TungVan,

Create your own user-defined services in Windows XP

This allow you to create a Windows user-defined service for Windows applications and some 16-bit applications (but not for batch files).

What is needed for Windows XP: The files are included with Windows XP.

Windows XP
At a MS-DOS command prompt (Start | Run | "cmd.exe"), type the following commands:


Creating Services:
  Adding Service (Note: Space between binpath= and "C:\ has to be there.
  <path>\sc.exe create "Service Name" binPath= "C:\Your Program.exe"
  Removing Service
  <path>\sc.exe delete "Service Name"

Controlling Services:
  Starting Service
  <path>\sc.exe start "Service Name"
  Pausing Service
  <path>\sc.exe pause "Service Name"
  Stoping Service
  <path>\sc.exe stop "Service Name"

This should work for you....

OziOi. Ian.
