How to Run Open DNS Updater as a Windows Service

Posted by David  •  Aug 14th, 2009 2:53:38 pm - Subscribe | Mood: full | Music: Watching - Primal Fear

This entry explains how to run the Open DNS Updater as a Windows Service, rather than a continuing running process on the task bar.

You can run Open DNS Updater as a Window Service by doing the following:

1. Start it as a service with SrvAny.exe. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/137890

2. Keep in mind you may need to copy the folder and files from: "%USERPROFILE%\Application Data\OpenDNS Updater" to the other "user's" home's application data then.

Should you have any questions leave feel free to drop a comment, I will do my best to help you out.

I'm trying to set this up with NSSM (https://nssm.cc/) and it is returning unexpected errors. Have you tried this or anything like it recently?
