Server 2008 Application Error Mesage

We have an application that runs in a user session on Server 2008. We normally start the program and then discoonect from the server leaving the session up. From time to time the program throws an error, which is self correcting. However Server 2008 is trapping the error and displaying a message box that requires a response before the program can continue.

I believe there is a way to set the error reporting so that it does not display the message box, but I am not an admin.

Can anyone help?

Thanks.

I've had excellent success using FireDaemon to get Windows apps to run as a service.

It has a lot of config options for error handling etc.
