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

in such cases i use the xyntservice program from httgp://www.codeproject.com/system/xyntservice.asp
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 ...
