Get SRVANY from Windows 2000 Resource Kit

Step 1: Create a directory under your root and call it SRVANY and copy these three files, SRVANY.EXE, SRVANY.WRI, and INSTSRV.EXE into the SRVANY directory.

Step 2: Go to the DOS Command prompt and navigate to the SRVANY Directory. At the command prompt TYPE: INSTSRV Lotus d:\srvany\srvany.exe . Notice the second element on the command line Lotus. This is the name of the service that you will create. Later, you will go to the SERVICE applet in the CONTROL CENTER and will access the service by this name. verify that a message starting with "CreateService SUCCESS".

Step 3: Exit the DOS COMMAND Console, and start the REGEDT32.EXE.

Step 4: Open up the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE window and double-click on the SYSTEM branch. The branch opens up and you should see the CurrentControlSet branch. Double-click on that one and the Services branch should appear. Double-click on the Services branch and a long list of branches is displayed.

Step 5: Scroll down until you find the name of the service that you created. It would be Lotus if that's the name you chose earlier. Double-click on Lotus and leave this highlighted. Move the cursor up to the EDIT menu bar and Click on Add Key...

Step 6: The Add Key dialog box is displayed. In the "Key Name" text box type: Parameters
You don't have to enter anything in the "Class" text box. Press OK.

Step 7: Highlight the Parameters Key and bring your cursor to the EDIT menu bar again and click on the Add Value choice.

Step 8: In the Value Name text box type in: Application. From the Data Type list box choose: REG_SZ Now press OK.

Step9: The String Editor Dialog box will open up. Enter the full path to the Lotus executable. Press OK to get out

Step 10: Highlight the Parameters Key and bring your cursor to the EDIT menu bar again and click on the Add Value choice to add another key. In the Value Name text box type in: AppParameters
From the Data Type list box choose: REG_SZ and press OK

Step 11: When the String Editor dialog box opens up add the options you need. With WFA, look for the properties for the shortcut that launches the Lotus Application and copy whatever appears after the executable.

Step 12: Highlight the Parameters Key and once again bring your cursor to the EDIT menu bar again and click on the Add Value choice to add another key. In the Value Name text box type in: AppDirectory
From the Data Type list box choose: REG_SZ and press OK

Step 13: When the String Editor dialog box opens up add the directory path of the lotus Executable file.

Close it all up and exit the REGEDT32 program. Move to the Control Panel.

Step 14: Open up the SERVICE Applet and scroll to the Lotus line and double click on it. A dialog box opens up. Choose the Startup Type: Automatic.

Step 15:(Final Step) Press OK, and choose Close in the Services applet. You're done. Try it.
