I have written a Windows service that periodically needs to be restarted.
This service has been installed onto customer computers.
Is there a way, via a php webpage, to start the service?
What I am ultimately looking for is a very simple way of getting the customer to restart the service outside of reboot their computer.
If I was on site I'd:
Type in CMD and "run as administrator"
Then approved the request "run as administrator" request
Then type in "net start serviceName"
Then close the command prompt
This can be daunting to explain to my customers so I thought if there was a way to send them a link...
Intuitively I'd think this isn't possible...
Any thoughts or ideas?
