I am in a remote location and I login into a base server using RDP and I want to make an application start and run as a service. I have learned how to make an application run as a service but I need do this from a remote location using RDP. Is there a way to login as the console? Or do I need to be logged in on the console to work with the registry to create a service?

THANKS!!

The "Remote Desktops" tool in the Windows Server 2003 Administrative Tools will also allow this. Go to the properties of the connection and place a check-mark next to "connect to console."  NB - this assumes that you're in an AD environment and that your workstation is joined to the domain in questions.
