Re: [wuhu_software_group] Re: HeavyWeather as a service
The WUHU Service does just that, it tucks WUHU in the background so if you run it on a box that isn't attended, or reboots, the WUHU restarts automagicly.
You can run the heavyweather as a service also. You just need to install another service for that. (I don't recommend using heavyweather at all)
The install doesn't say that you can but really you can run any exe as a service with the WUHU Service I wrote.
I would recommend getting WUHU working, then installing WUHU as a service, configure WUHU as direct serial connection to your weather station, save the settings, shut it down, and start the service.
WUHU then runs in the background, great on dedicated machines that you don't have to worry about logging into the console to make sure WUHU is running.
Have any other specific questions, lemme know :]

OK, I'll assume I'm pretty dense in absorbing this kind of thing, but I am interested in running WUHU as a service. With that said, can someone explain what exactly that means? Does it mean WUHU will run in the background, without really showing it is running? I've downloaded the file, then I was somehow able to get the WUHU Service added as a service (although, I do not believe the installer with the package did anything for me...and I wasn't quite clear on the instructions). I'm just not sure if it's doing what it's supposed to, mostly because I'm not quite sure what that is :) Any help would be appreciated. Thank you. Brian CW6873 P.S. I am running in serial mode on WinXP SP2. --- In firstname.lastname@example.org, "wuhu_software" <wuhu_software@...> wrote:
Jeff, I have not heard of anyone running HW as a service. There are instructions for running WUHU as a service. This would require that you dump HW and run WUHU in direct serial mode. If you are interested, see the following file in the files section of the Yahoo group: wuhuservice.zip - WUHU As Service by John Liss. --- In email@example.com, "stvfv_jeff" <geoffreygiordano@> wrote:
Has anyone had any success with running HeavyWeather as a service? With srvany? When I use srvany, the process starts, but seems to hang early in it's initialization sequence. I've tried running as a real user and runing as the local system account (with and without
