Experts,

This may be a relatively easy question, but I haven't been able to find any information on the web about it.

I have a GNS3 installation sitting on a Windows Server (2k8) that works great.

I'd like to turn that install into a Windows Service if it's possible.  I've added it as a registry key already (HKLM\Software\Microsoft\CurrentVersion\Run) and it does start the program with absolutely no problems when any user logs in.

But, I'd like to have it start without user interaction in this case.  Is this possible?  -(AutoLogin is not an option).

Any suggestions you guys have would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much for the information.

I'm familiar with that program, and it will accomplish a portion of what I'm looking for here.

Thanks.
