So we have a production InDesign Server (CS6) running 4 instances. The instances are set to start as Windows services and no issues there at all. The problem is my Clover commands that handles the LBQ to manage those instances. Right now I have a .bat file that I run manually and it opens a command prompt and runs it there.
The problem is that if the server gets logged off or reboots then that Clover part dies and my LBQ dies with it.
How can I go about setting this up as a Windows service so that it runs automatically?
How about putting the .bat file in the windows startup folder(C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup)
Or there are other tools like runasservice.com which can install/ran commands as a service
Since this question posted I have started using NSSM. Works really well and have had no issues with running it as a service now.
