Hello,

We have an application that needs to run at all time on a workstation running windows 7 pro.

This workstation is on a server 2003 domain.  

Any ideas on how to fix the service to run at all times regardless as to who is logged in on the system or if it is just running without a user logged into the system.

Thank you

If the problem is that the services fails because it needs to log on as 'administrator' you can change it under the local services tab in services.msc - change the 'log on' information to the desired account or to 'log on as local system' - I believe the local system option might require some extra code signing hoops depending on local policies

if the problem is that the service is not executed unless the administrator logs on then you need to create appropriate registry keys in which case I would refer to TechNet and google for running a service when windows starts
