LOR as a Service

Recommended Posts

I have a windows 2003 server in my house which I am planning on running LOR on. I figured since it already has to be on to serve my files and other things it could serve a dual purpose.

Is there anyway to run LOR as a service? I'd really like it to run without someone having to be logged in.

There are ways to run applications as a service. You can google "run application as service" and find all kinds of links. The link below applies to runnig an application on windows 2000 server as a service, you may want to look around for windows 2003 server.

I'd be interested in seeing if this works. Could you please post your results if you try it. Thanks

Thanks Richard,

Which exe would I run. There seem to be several in the LOR folder. Which one is responsible for executing shows and running them off the schedule?

There is a program with the word "monitor" in its name. It runs shows. When you click "Enable Shows" you are starting the monitor.....

Thanks Dan,

Always good to hear from you. Have you heard of anyone trying what I am wanting to do?

If your concern is that the system will require logon when it starts, you could always set it to automatically logon using these instructions:

Not very secure, but ok if the box is physically locked down.

Can you set LOR to auto enable shows? I noticed that you can set LOR to auto start but I'm not sure about auto enabling shows...

All, thanks...I'm going to try these ideas tonight and let you know.
