Windows Service or Running the Watchport/h in the background

0 votes
Hello,

I am trying to run my Watchport /H from a windows 2k3 server, and have the program run even when I log off of the server. Right now I have to leave my session logged on, and it will monitor the temperature just fine, however if someone logs me off or needs access to the server it stops running.

I have tried to follow the Create a windows service, however it does not interact with the USB Sensor. It will only monitor if I have the GUI Watchport Software running.

Thanks,

Andrew

Hello Andrew,

The current release of Watchport Manager does not have a service feature, so logging out of the PC would close the program (this is expected behavior).

Note that our Watchport developer is working on a separate version of Watchport Manager that runs as a service. I'll send you an e-mail when it's available.

Hello,

Thanks for your response. I have heard that they are working on a fix for this problem before and still not fixed. Any idea when it might be ready by?

Sorry, we don't have an estimated release date yet. The best I can say is that this project is underway.

Please inform me also, when it is possible to have a software/service that is running in the background.

The last I heard from our Watchport developer, the Watchport Manager that will run as a service is expected to be released in about a month. I'll add you to a waiting list (unless you're already on it) so we'll notify you as soon as it's ready. Thanks in advance for your patience!
