How to make the Nginx-0.7.54(Windows official release) RUN AS WINDOWS SERVICE?

Posted by kernelforce 
Recently, I got Nginx-0.7.54(official Windows binary), it is simply to install, I'm very apperciate it.

But in this version, Nginx must be started as
[code]
cd c:\nginx
[b]start nginx[/b]
[/code]

My question is how to make it run as [b]a windows service[/b]?
Which is important for a server to start the nginx service before any user is loggin on.

I used to achieve it as
[code]
cd /d c:\nginx\
instsrv Nginx c:\nginx\srvany.exe
[/code]
and add follow register information
[code]
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Nginx\Parameters]
[b]"Application"="C:\\nginx\\nginx.exe"[/b]
"AppParameters"=""
"AppDirectory"="C:\\nginx\\"
[/code]

But these above doesn't work in this version. The reason may be lie in the difference of starting nginx.

I'm using 0.7.59 release and don't understand the "start nginx.exe" command line to provide. Maybe you confuse with 0.7.50 version of Keven Worthington ?

I think we have to wait, according to the mailing-list : http://marc.info/?l=nginx&m=124127304613705&w=2, http://marc.info/?l=nginx&w=2&r=1&s=windows+service&q=b

Haven't found a solution for now on Vista.

Maybe you can try to run a batch file instead of the .exe on the:


>
> "Application"="C:\\nginx\\nginx.exe"
> "AppParameters"=""
> "AppDirectory"="C:\\nginx\\"

Change to:
"Application"="C:\\nginx\\yourBatch.bat"

On the batch, simple put the:
start nginx command
