Hi,
Just configured WatchDog monitor our HM service from a different site. I note that WatchDog can be run as a service but cant for the life of me find how to do this other than to create the service myself.

I assume doing a DIY service is the only way?

Thanks

Watchdog version 1.12

Start WatchDog, click Help-> Installation and you will see the answer right away.
or visit on-line help at http://www.ks-soft.net/hostmon.eng/watchdog/index.htm#install


How to install WatchDog as Win32 Interactive service

Start WatchDog with the command line parameter "/InstallService". E.g. "watchdog.exe /InstallService". Software will install itself as Win32 interactive service. Normally service will be started at system startup however you may start and stop service at any time using standard Windows "Services" applet or command line like "net start HMWatchDogService", "net stop HMWatchDogService"

Note 1: We do not recommend installing WatchDog as a service under Windows NT 4.0. At least not as an interactive service. In the case you really need to start WatchDog as a Win32 service on Windows NT 4.0, please disable the "Allow service to interact with desktop" option for the service (option provided by Windows Services applet). In this case you will not be able to see WatchDog icon in the system tray.
Note 2: If you are using Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008, you will not be able to use GUI in service mode. You need to start another instance in application mode when you want to change some settings.
Note 3: When you start WatchDog in application mode it checks for another instance and may stop service after confirmation (then it allows you to start service when you close application).

To uninstall service, start WatchDog with command line parameter "/UninstallService". E.g. "watchdog.exe /UninstallService".

Regards
Alex
