Ask any home or small business server expert, and they'll tell you that one of the essential skills to learn - making life with a server much more convenient - is the ability to run an application as a service: that is, configuring programs to run when a server starts-up without the need for any users to log-in.
Servers, unlike client computers, are generally designed to be set-up and then locked away securely - unless you're really attached to your server, you may not log-in and use it directly on a day to day basis.
You may need to install a program that normally requires a user to log-in to the server for it to run. That can be a real hassle - who wants to have to log-in every time you need to use the app? Sure, you can log-in remotely, but wouldn’t it be easier if this application started automatically when the server boots, without the need for a user to log-in to the server?
How do you do get a application that is not installed as a service to behave like one? We will show you a variety of methods, using both free and commercially available software that makes it very easy to do so on Windows Server Essentials, Windows Server snd Windows Home Server.
In this guide, you'll discover powerful server software that allows you to run any application as a service. We take you step by step through installation of your apps, tailoring their configuration to run automatically as services without errors. If third-party software isn't for you, we'll also show you how to achieve the same result using core Windows Server features. When you've learned the skills required to run your apps as services on Windows Server, you'll find it far easier and more convenient to maximise your use of the server at home or in the workplace.
