Running Axapta 2.5 as a service

Hi there, is it possible, to run an axapata client as a service? We are running a network with Windows 2000. For the batch jobs running every night, i’m looking for a solution to run them on the server without a login. Has anybody experience in this things? Regards Wolfgang

You can look into using a third party tool such as ServiceMill. You can get it at http://www.activeplus.com/ But you can also have the client run at a specific time and you can automate the login procedure via startup parameter so that when f.ex. server goes down and up again, the client starts up, logs into Axapta and runs the batch class.
