Service still active at startup

I want to run continuous bodies of Iperf in server mode on ordinary Windows (probably Win NT, XP (Pro or not) or Server ...).

This program can be started as a Win service (command iperf -s -D).

I would like to ensure that this service starts automatically running every reboot. I have tested under Windows XP and unfortunately, it is inactive after reboot (but of course this in the list of services of msconfig).

My knowledge of Windows are really not at all sharp, and I would find a way to do that which is:
- Simple
- Automated if possible (with a script, or install it if it is not too complicated)
- And especially works on different versions of Windows (something robust).

Is this possible?

this is not the list of services but the process! To access the list of services, you must use the command:
Code:
services.msc
And normally you can configure the startup as you want, whether it is a "service".

Regarding the solution code, you can make a small simple script:
Code:
iperf -s -D
in a file that you need to rename to iperf.bat and place it in the folder:

Start -> All programs -> Startup

Thank you very much!

But your recommendation for automatic switching does not work with all versions. Precisely where it gets complicated. I know he can handle this using the Windows API, but its a task too complex for my needs I think.

If that has another solution not dependent on the version of Windows/language, it would be great!

Re: Service still active at startup

So here is the General manipulation to activate a service in Windows XP:

Code:
services.msc
=> see if your application is in the list.

If yes, double click on it, start there and select startup type to "Automatic".
Validate everything and then close everything.

To check if Windows has taken into account your manipulation, run the command:

Code:
msconfig
Look at the "Services" tab and see if your application is part of the list.

I'm not sure if it will work, I do not know enough about how Windows manages services.
