Running OPC Netlistner as a service

Post by whittye » Tue Oct 20, 2009 5:11 pm

Hi,

Is it possible to run Netlistner as a service? We have a server situated in a datacentre and it is a requirment that all applications run as a service as no user will be logged on to the server.

Thanks,

Eamon.

There are a batch file in C:\program files\somebytes\opc netlistener\ called InstallAsService.bat. Click it and the service will be installed. Go to services and check if it is on automatic and running.

We tried your suggestion but when we try to start the service it fails with "Could not stat the OPCNetlistner...error 1053 - The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion". We are running Server 2003. Any ideas?

Regards,

Eamon.

Hello,

The Service mode is tested on MS Server 2000. If you use MS Server 2003 you got new Security Features which the Service can't handle.

I will try to provide a new version, which is able to run on MSS2003. If it is not that difficult to change, i will have it ready today evening.

bye
