How to run your application as a Windows Service

Application Integration Guides

Over 220 guides on how to run your application in the background as a Windows Service.

There are times when you need an application to run all the time, regardless if you’re logged in or it crashes. Critical things such as game servers, web servers and communication applications need this type of 24/7 monitoring.

 

There are a few ways to go about this; Windows Batch Files or Powershell scripts can accomplish this to a degree but they’re difficult to use for the average user as it uses command and scripting syntax respectively. Creating a Windows service can be also be done, but it doesn't offer as much options as batch files do.

 

That’s where FireDaemon Pro steps in! It bridges the gap between the two of them with a GUI that offers much more options! With it you can keep your important applications up 24/7 by running them as a service but unlike other alternatives that simply run the application as a service FireDaemon Pro extends on this to do far far more. You can set schedules, process affinity so your whole system doesn't lock up from one CPU intensive application and even run another application before your service starts or after it stops and much more!
