Hello,

How do you run a program as a service on windows 2003 server. I found this article but it is for 2000 and it needs some resource kit that I do not have on my server install.  http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=137890

Thanks

Mike

anyway you can download the resource kit tools package or utilities itself from microsoft website

You can download the resource kit easily enough. Does it need to be a service or just running at startup -- you could always run a scheduled task to run at startup, either manually through the GUI or using SCHTASKS /MO STARTUP ...
