[WD20] Exe started from a service is not visible

Startbeitrag von DannHCS am 11.06.2016 08:17

I use a service that starts an exe (with ExeRun).

This exe opens a Window visible for a few seconds and than minimize it self on SysIcon.

If I starts the exe, it works fine, I can see the window and the sys icon.
But if I let the service starts the exe, it doesn't show the window and neither the sys icon.




Hi Dann

because a service is not supposed to have a UI, neither directly nor indirectly. Therefore, the user running it doesn't have rights to do what your exe needs.

You'll need to start your service with a "regular" user in order for it to have a chance to work.

Best regards

I think it's the way he wants to start a UI for the management of the service itself as mano software do.
I have a lot of Windows services in my sistray bar.
Maybe he need to do that.

Hi Stefano

most of the time, what you see in the systray is a separate exe started with the system and dialoguing with the service, not an exe started BY the service.

And that is the solution.
Thanks it will be useful for me too.

It can even be the same exe started twice.
That's how the WD example works. On startup it detects the service-state and proproses to install/deinstall.
And it also shows an option to continue in a UI interface (with an option to even pause the service if you want).
Works for me.

If you want your exe not visible and launch by anyway, you have tou use the api windows to launch it. There is option to call in silent mode.
You have to refer to API because is conditionned by OS for security.

Appeldll32 for "kernel32" and command "WinExec"
