How to Run PageGate as a Service Transcript for Video:
Welcome to the video tutorial on how to switch PageGate's run style from an Application to a Windows Service.
PageGate has two basic methods of operating. It can be run as an Application or as a Windows Service. Typically speaking, we definitely recommend running PageGate as a Windows Service as that removes the program's logon dependence. This means that someone could restart the system and forget to log in to Windows and that won't matter to PageGate; the program will start itself as soon as Windows starts.
To switch the run style, first you'll want to find the shortcut for the PageGate Admin, right click on it and select 'Run as Administrator'.
If prompted by the UAC, please allow this process to continue.
Once you have the Admin open, expand the Program section and click on Settings beneath it.
On the right hand side, in the 'Run PageGate as' section, select: Windows Service
When you click Apply, you'll be prompted for credentials. Leave them blank and click Apply again.
When you do, you should see that it begins switching the run style. Once 'Switching run tyles' goes away, you'll want to open the services list in Windows.
To open the services, you can either go in to 'services' in the Administrative Tools in Windows or you can bring up a run line and enter services.msc
Once you have the services open, find the PageGate service, then right click on it and select 'start'. From this point forward, PageGate will now automatically start itself any time you reboot the computer.
This concludes the video tutorial on how to switch PageGate's run style from an Application to a Windows service.
