Make a program run as a service on XP / Vista?
Posted on 2010-11-23
I have a program called GBridge that I use for file backup and remote access. The problem with the program is that it doesn't run as a service, so I need someone to log into the computer in order for the syncing to occur. I've attempted numerous ways to make the program run as a service. I've even successfully created the service a few times but it would fail to start.
I'll need to have this program setup as a service on about 50 computers so I'm looking for a cheap (aka free) way of doing this.
The shortcut that is on my desktop (which I'm attempting to make a service) is:
"C:\Program Files\Gbridge LLC\Gbridge\pstartw.exe" "C:\Program Files\Gbridge LLC\Gbridge\Gbridge.exe"
Any help is greatly appreciated!
