I have a client with a P-O-S (Point of Sale) program.  The program is in the Start up and executes the following:
\\Term01\POS\POSServer\EXES\BackOffice.exe.

The user is prompted by a security warning and has to press Run in order for the program to run.  Is there a way to make this a Service and it start up automatically without having to select Run in the prompt?

I created a service using this method - but it gives me a permissions error.
"c:\sc.exe create "POSBackOffice" binPath= "\\Term01\POS\POSServer\Exes\BackOffice.exe"
Success"
