Turn an app into a service

By nosrednaanit ·
We are in need of a tool/utility that will make an NT service out of a home-grown application. I have heard there are products out there that do things like this, but don't have any names. Also, if you have used a product like this, any tips on making it work smoothly would be greatly appreciated. TIA, Tina

Turn an app into a service

by avachon In reply to Turn an app into a servic ...

Hi, in the Microsoft Nt server resource kit there is the tool, SRVANY.exe which will allow you to run a 32-bit app as a service. According to the documentation, the app should be written for NT for best results. This tool will allow the same functionality with 16 bit apps but results will vary. I hope this helps.

Search your favorite shareware site for Service-It by Active+ Software. Haven't used it, but it is getting a lot of shareware awards.

If you go to the microsoft website do a search for autoexnt.exe . It is an app to service utility as well.
