    Unanswered: Ingres on NT - winstart.exe

    Hello

    I use Ingres on Windows NT. I have to run winstart.exe everyday when I first login. I'm tired of having to remember and having to click the "start" button in the winstart window. Isn't there a way to start ingres totally behind the scenes, like as a service or something?

    Thank you!

    Yes, you can start Ingres as a service automatically. Go to services and turn it on. If it is not listed, start it first then go there and set it. You should be fine.

    I don't see the service listed. Do I have to have administrative privledges on Windows 2000?

    What I ended up doing was making a .bat file with contents:
    "C:\IngresII\ingres\utility\ingstart.exe" and then putting the .bat file in the startup folder. I just didn't want to have to click the start button on the winstart.exe window all the time. But if running as a service gains me anything . . .

    Thanks!!

    Look for a service called Ingres Intelligent Database.

    Same problem

    I've encountered the same problem, and the service isn't listed in the Services window.

    I've installed Ingres so i could run ODBC from this computer to another on the network. How do I get the service into the services list if it isn't there?

    When you run ingstart (with traffic lights in the top left corner) there should be a "Start as service" tick box below the dialogue screen.

    This should create the service for you.

    Other ways are:

    You can also add the ingstart at the Windows Startup Menu.

    Or add ingstart in the registry key
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER_\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Run

    You could try re-installing the service manually.

    opingsvc remove

    to remove the service and

    opingsvc install

    to install it.

    opingsvc is in %II_SYSTEM%\ingres\bin - but that should be on your path anyway
