in reply to Install a perl script as a Win NT/2000/XP service.

None of the above worked for me on Windows 7 64-bit, but they did lead me in the right direction. The Non-Sucking Service Manager ended up being the key. Below is the code for the two .bat scripts needed to install a Perl script as a service in Windows 7 64-bit. It should also work in 32-bit versions, but I have not been able to test this yet.


@echo off if defined %ProgramFiles(x86)% ( "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\path_to\your_app\service\nssm.exe" install my +Service "C:\Program Files (x86)\path_to\your_app\portable_perl\perl\b +in\perl.exe" """C:\Program Files (x86)\path_to\your_app\" +"" ) else ( "%ProgramFiles%\path_to\your_app\service\nssm.exe" install myServi +ce "C:\Program Files\path_to\your_app\portable_perl\perl\bin\perl.exe +" """C:\Program Files\path_to\your_app\""" ) net start myService exit


@echo off net stop myService if defined %ProgramFiles(x86)% ( "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\path_to\your_app\service\nssm.exe" remove myS +ervice confirm ) else ( "%ProgramFiles%\path_to\your_app\service\nssm.exe" remove myServic +e confirm ) exit

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
