Subject Re: CouchDB as a windows service.
Date Thu, 04 Aug 2011 13:43:41 GMT
I am not sure why you want to go with this pain.  As I understand this you
want to install Couchdb as a service on windows without using the installer
and without using any registry keys.  Is this correct.  I believe this is
going to be impossible. When dealing with services in Windows system you are
working with the security core (think ring 0) of the system and to try this
manually (and without setting registry keys correctly - including the
security settings on these keys) just is NOT going to work.  QUESTION: why
do you want to do this? Perhaps you can achieve your goals another way.
