    Question Process that continues after you logoff

    Hi !

    I'm desperately seeking, not Susan, but a way to spawn a process on my computer which will not be killed when I logoff. Some sort of a background process ...

    Any ideas out there will be highly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    You need an auto-start windows service.

    Thank you.

    How exactly could this work ? My customer is using our software and has the ability to launch a very long process (to compute something). I would like to give him the possibility of logging out for the week-end.

    Can standard user start theses services - I cannot ask my customers to change their privileges...

    Thanks again

    Services run in the Local System user context by default.
    It can do work on behalf of the active user.

    Look at some documentation - Introduction to Windows Service Applications
