Install Controller and Coordinator as Windows Services

If you are installing Controller and Coordinator on a Windows platform, you can manually install them as Windows services at the command line.

To install Controller and Coordinator as Windows services

  2. Navigate to the directory that contains the Controller or Coordinator.
  3. Send the following command:

    or

    Coordinator.exe -install

    The -install command has the following optional arguments:

    -start {[auto] | [manual] | [disable]} The startup mode for the component. Auto means that Windows services automatically starts the component. Manual means that you must start the service manually. Disable means that you cannot start the service. The default option is Auto.
    -username Username The user name that the service runs under. By default, it uses a local system account.
    -password Password The password for the service user.
    -servicename ServiceName The name to use for the service. If your service name contains spaces, use quotation marks (") around the name. By default, it uses the executable name.
    -displayname DisplayName The name to display for the service in the Windows services manager. If your display name contains spaces, use quotation marks (") around the name. By default, it uses the service name.
    -depend Dependency1[,Dependency2 ...] A comma-separated list of the names of Windows services that Windows must start before the new service. For example, you might want to add the License Server as a dependency.

    For example:

    Controller.exe -install -servicename ControllerComponent -displayname "IDOL Controller 1" -depend LicenseServer

After you have installed Controller and Coordinator as services, you can start and stop them from the Windows Services manager.

When you no longer require a Controller or Coordinator, you can uninstall them.

    If you did not use the default service name when you installed the component, you must also add the -servicename argument. For example:

    Controller.exe -uninstall -servicename ServiceName
