Run As Service
« on: June 14, 2006, 09:22:47 PM »

It would be nice for any version of windows where you have a user login that AHP run as a service so it starts on reboot and runs PC only macros.

Ditto.
I've almost gone out and bought a dedicated computer just for AHP just out of frustration on that point.

Yeah, Windows Vista! 

I'll wait a year or so 'til they get the bugs worked out.   ;)

Let's see if MS can get Vista's "final release" to be packed with every legacy device diriver that exists anywhere. Maybe by Christmas 2007?

...they want it to be complete and bug free....
I once heard a quote somewhere that said the only time software becomes totally bug free is after it becomes obsolete. The more features; the opportunities for bugs.

I agree. BUT we are taking about MS. I guess it means as bug free as possible...?
Since it's 3 years over due, means that they have probably been working on it for at least 4+ years.
Sure hope it will be worthwile for the consumer.

Wait awhile, let others discover the big/main problems.

I used to have such a rule about odd (or was it even  ???  ) numbered MS operating systems.  Then they messed me all up by NAMING them!   ;D

...Install and Run as SrvAny Service...
First glance has me thinking I'd need some hand holding to figure it out but I'd be interested if it would let me boot into AHP.
