Install and run any application as a Windows Service

Professional Command Line Utilities to Install and Run any Application as a Service

Easily deploy any executable, script, batch file or program as a Windows 10/2016/8/2012/7/2008/Vista/2003/XP Service - No coding necessary!

The AlwaysUp Command Line Tools (CLT) package is designed for developers and application integrators looking to discreetly keep their applications available 24x7. It delivers the full power and sophistication of the highly rated, popular AlwaysUp GUI product, but entirely from the Windows command line.

Instead of devoting your precious development resources to re-writing your application to operate as a Windows Service, use AlwaysUp CLT to achieve that objective in an afternoon!

Site licensing is available to use AlwaysUp CLT within your organization; OEM licensing is available to those wanting to package AlwaysUp CLT with their own commercial products. In either case, distribution is royalty free!

And perhaps best of all, our experienced, knowledgeable support team is on hand to help you overcome any thorny issues that may arise as you deploy your application as a Windows Service.

Take advantage of our free, unrestricted 30-day trial to ensure that AlwaysUp CLT will work for you!
