Hi,

   I am testing out Alfresco 3.2 on Windows XP. I have installed it using the stack Installer. I start it using alf_start.bat and stop it using alf_stop.bat. I would like to know if there is a way of getting Alfresco start up a Windows Service – so that it would be in the background, and I wont have to see the MySQL and Tomcat windows pop up.

   By the way the Search functionality in this forum is jinxed. If you search for Start Alfresco as a Windows Service I get the following


The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words: alfresco service start windows as a.
You must specify at least one word to search for. Each word must consist of at least 3 characters and must not contain more than 14 characters excluding wildcards.

   Anyway there is a Wiki Page Configuring Alfresco as a Windows Service   The problem with that is it starts only the Tomcat part. What about starting the Embedded MySQL also as a service?

Thanks a lot,
O.O.
