I have a windows 2003 server (domain controller) that I have a time clock server software running on. The problem is that there are three items that need to run all the time. They however cannot run until I log in. I would like these three items to run all the time and start running even if nobody is logged in. The software is created by Keller-systems if this helps. the three files are serverwatchdog.exe, gotwix.exe, clockserver.exe. My thoughts are to make them a service and load on startup rather than from the administrators login.
