Has anybody successfully configured a database to be started as a Windows service ? I think it could be possible to do that with nssm or srvany, but I wanted to know if anybody had already done that and would like to share his findings.
does this kbase help ? community.progress.com/.../30697

Sorry this one
The second solution is more or less what I'm looking for, but it doesn't handle the DB shutdown for example.
you could set up a scheduled task that starts the server (via a .bat script) after system boot
gus bjorklund be careful with scheduled tasks on Windows. The default priority is "WINDOWS_YOU_GET_NO_CPU_AT_ALL_PRIORITY" for scheduled tasks and there is no way to change it in the UI. You need to export the task, manually edit the XML file, then reimport the task.
How about Windows startup/shutdown script configured in:
1. Run gpedit.msc (Local Policies)
2. Computer Configuration -> Windows Settings -> Scripts -> Startup or Shutdown -> Properties -> Add
Paul Koufalis thanks, wasn't aware of that, I found more info in
