Subject: Synchronet Windows Service?
Usually when I run a BBS on Windows, I set it up to auto login to a local account, and put the BBS startup exe into the start up folder, so that
when the computer starts up, Windows logs in and starts the bbs automatically.
I've been playing around with windows 11 and as I have the home version,
I'm under the impression I can't do the auto-login anymore (I believe I can't use local accounts)
So it made me think, perhaps my bbs should be a service rather than an executable that starts up with a window...
I've never done any windows service programs, so I was wondering if synchronet works as a service (I know it has a gui on windows - at least
it did when I last used it - but i thought it might be controlling a background service.)?
I'm unsure how a service would do things like doors, can they pop up
windows on the desktop? I guess not?
I could be completley over complicating things by thinking I need to use
a service, perhaps there is a way to auto start applications on windows
I haven't tried Windows 11 yet, so I can't comment on the auto-login ability. Seems something you should be able to do: https://www.softwareok.com/?seite=faq-Windows-11&faq=53
That said, yes, Synchronet can run as NT services on Windows: https://wiki.synchro.net/monitor:ntsvcs
