Windows Services

On Windows NT and Windows 95, Lyris can run as a service. The options for installing and removing the Lyris service are:

-install
Install Lyris as a self-starting Windows NT service. For Windows NT only. Lyris will then be listed in the "Services" control panel, as an service automatically started up at boot time. You can start and stop the Lyris service from the "Services" control panel. The Lyris service runs in the background, so you will not see if on your desktop. Note that once the Lyris service is installed, you can start it on the command line with the command "net start lyris". Similarly, you can stop the Lyris service on the command line with the command "net stop lyris".

-install95
Install Lyris as a self-starting Windows 95 service. For Windows 95 only. The next time you reboot, Lyris will automatically start up at the Login screen. It will be running in the foreground, as a normal program. The advantage of installing Lyris as a Windows 95 service is that if your system accidentally reboots, Lyris will automatically start up again. If Lyris is running on Windows 95 and is not a service, you need to log in to Windows 95 in order for Lyris to run.

-remove
If Lyris is currently installed as a Windows NT service, then remove it.

-remove95
If Lyris is currently installed as a Windows 95 service, then remove it.
