Use Windows Resource Kit to configure an executable as a service on Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 Box?

I've been reading up on configuring Dropbox as a service on a Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 box. Is downloading and utilizing the Windows Resource Kit the best, and most current, option, or is there a better way to do it?



Neither best nor current. The srvany.exe version in the Resource Kit is by now 12 years old, and only comes in a 32bit version.

Try NSSM (Non-Sucking Service Manager) instead, I've used it without issues: https://nssm.cc/

It's easier to handle than srvany, has more options especially when it comes to error handling, and comes in 32bit and 64bit versions.

Folks,

My mistake, I apologize for the error. Please continue.
