Everything Client Service Help

Postby void » Tue May 07, 2013 12:04 pm

What is the Everything Client Service?

The client service is a Window Service that allows you to run the Everything client as a service.

The client service is not for general use.
There is no user interface when running the client service.

This service might be useful for running an ETP/FTP/HTTP server on Windows Server without the need to log-in.

It is not related to the Everything service, which is used for indexing NTFS volumes from a standard user account. The Everything service is not required when running the Everything client as a service.

Since there is no UI when running the client as a service, how do I change the settings?

Please make sure the client service is stopped.

Modify the settings by:

Running Everything as a normal application, make any changes within the UI, exit Everything completely before restarting the client service.

-or-

Modify the Everything.ini manually.

What are the requirements?

The client service requires Everything" version 1.3.2.649b or later.

How do I control the client service?

To install the service:

Code: Select all

Everything.exe -install-client-service


To uninstall the service:

Code: Select all

Everything.exe -uninstall-client-service


To start the service:

Code: Select all

Everything.exe -start-client-service


To stop the service:

Code: Select all

Everything.exe -stop-client-service
