AlwaysUp Version 10 Released: Keep Your Windows App Running 24/7/365

Version 10 of AlwaysUp, which runs any application as a Windows Service, was released last month. The major changes include:

  • Improved compatibility with Microsoft’s latest OS, Windows Server 2016.
  • Several annoying Data Execution Prevention (DEP) issues on Windows 8 & 10 were resolved.
  • A new command line switch to grant the service user access to the current desktop was introduced.
  • When stopping a group of services, an alert is no longer shown when a long-lived service exceeds the 1-minute time limit.
  • If necessary, the service account is now granted full access to the window station and desktop objects when starting in the current session.

As usual, please review the version history for the full list of features, fixes and improvements included in this release.
