    Default Got a jar file, how do i make a installer that would install it to windows services?

    Hey, i got a executable jar file.
    I know how to make a simple installer for that file (install - icon appears on desktop, click icon - apps opens), but how do i make it so it would run as windows service? I think its possible to do it with some cmd code but is there an installer or something so it would install itself as windows service? What do i need to look for?

    Usually you should have a wrapper for that purpose and prepare your files accordingly.
    You have to register services with windows - there are tools that do that for you. In principle you need to register java.exe with the jar file as parameter. How to do that... I do not know, but you may google it, if you do not want to wait for a qualified answer. ;)
