Run as Service v1.0.0.0

RunAsService is a command line tool that allows you to setup a regular
console application to run as a service. Below you will find descriptions
and examples of how to do this.

This tool requires that .NET Framework 2.0 be already installed on your computer. If you do not have .NET Framework 2.0 this tool will display a message and not run. You probably already have the .NET Framework 2.0 but if you don't you can download it here: Microsoft Download Center

IMPORTANT: Any services you install using this tool will
require that this tool remain on that computer in the same
location in order for those services to continue functioning. Therefore
before installing any services you should make sure this tool is
somewhere where it can remain permanently. If you do end up moving
this tool use the 'fixservices' action to fix the existing services.
(details on how to use 'fixservices' can be found below)

Typing just the name of the tool without specifying any parameters.
Or specifying incorrect paramters will bring you to the help screen.

RunAsService install [Name] [Display Name] PathToExecutable
The name of the service, if none is specified the name
will default to the name of the executable.

You might choose to give it a different name than
the executable to keep some kind of existing convention,
make it friendlier or make it easier to use commands like
'net start' and 'net stop'

Display Name
This is how the service name will be displayed in the windows
services list. If no display name is specified it will default
to Name, if Name is not specified, it will default to the name
of the executable.

Generally the display name is longer and more descriptive
than the name and gives the user a better idea of what
the service is and/or does.

The location of the application you want to run as a service.

Note, the tool will check if this executable exists, if it
doesn't find it will not install it.

RunAsService uninstall Name
The name of the service you would like to uninstall.

RunAsService fixservices
Use this action when you've moved the RunAsService executable.
Services installed using RunAsService require that RunAsService
remain on the computer and at the same location if
you move it the services will stop working, use this
action to fix that.


RunAsService install "c:\my apps\Myapp.exe"
Installs Myapp as a service called "Myapp"

RunAsService install "My Service" "c:\my apps\Myapp.exe"
Installs Myapp as a service called "My Service"

RunAsService install "My Service" "My Super Cool Service" "c:\my apps\Myapp.exe"
Installs Myapp as a service internally called "My Service"
when using commands like 'net start' and 'net stop' and shows
up as "My Super Cool Service" in Window's services list.

RunAsService uninstall "My Service"
Uninstalls the service.

RunAsService fixservices
Use this action if you move this tool. This is because services
installed using this tool rely on this tool remaining on that
computer and at the same location. If you do not call 'fixservices'
after moving this tool the existing services installed using this
tool will stop functioning.


You can use Windows built in commands to start and stop your
services. For example you can use:
net start "My Service"
net stop "My Service"

Where "My Service" would be replaced with the name of your service.
