To run Cinegy Process Coordination Service as a Windows service, go to the "Windows service" tab of the configurator and specify all the necessary parameters:

Click the link to open the log and view the details of failure.

The service can be uninstalled, stopped or restarted by pressing the corresponding buttons:

For your convenience, the information is duplicated in the configurator tab; it can also be monitored as a standard Windows service:

Settings

The following Windows service settings are available:

  • Log on as – use the drop-down list to define the service logon mode:

    Service_logon_mode
    Note
    This option should be selected depending on the user’s permissions assigned locally by the system administrator.

    With the "User" option selected, the required field becomes highlighted with a red frame; press the expand_settings_buttonbutton to expand the "Log on as" settings and enter the user name and password in the corresponding fields:

    Logon_as_user_name_password
    Note
    Please mind that the Windows service settings cannot be saved until all required fields are filled in; the red indicator shows a tooltip explaining the reason why settings cannot be applied.
  • Start mode – use the drop-down list to define the service start mode.

    Service_start_mode
    Note
    It is recommended to use the "Automatic (Delayed)" service start mode, which enables automatic service start immediately after all the main system services have been started.
