I have a program that needs to start automatically on a 2008 server. I have it in the startup folder and that works fine when I log on to the server. The problem is if I manage the server remotely and then close my remote connection the program closes as if I logged off.
So my question is How do I keep the program running.
Also is it possible to have the program start before I log into the server. In other words if I reboot it remotely, when it starts (without me logging in) can the program be started? In case it matters the program is a connection to our Microsoft Retail Management System that listens for connections from our Pet stores.
