Run TeamSpeak Server as a Windows Service with AlwaysUp

How to Run TeamSpeak Server as a Windows Service with AlwaysUp

Ensure that your VOIP server starts immediately when your PC boots and survives crashes, hangs, leaks, etc.

TeamSpeak is a popular VIOP package aimed at enhancing communication for gamers. It is often desirable for the TeamSpeak Server to be available 24/7.

To configure TeamSpeak 3.0 with AlwaysUp:

  1. Download and install AlwaysUp, if necessary.

  2. Download the TeamSpeak Server zip file and extract it to a new directory, if necessary. We have used C:\TeamSpeakServer and the following instructions are based on that setting.

  3. Start AlwaysUp.

  4. Select Application > Add to open the Add Application window:

    Add Application

  5. On the General tab:

    • In the Application field, enter the full path to the TeamSpeak Server executable, ts3server_win32.exe. Since we placed TeamSpeak in C:\TeamSpeakServer, we have specified:


    • In the Name field, enter the name that you will call the application in AlwaysUp. We have used TeamSpeak Server but you can specify virtually anything you like.

  6. Click over to the Startup tab and check the Ensure that the Windows Networking components have started box. This informs AlwaysUp that TeamSpeak needs the TCP/IP networking stack to operate.

  7. Click the Save button. In a couple of seconds, an application called TeamSpeak Server will show up in the AlwaysUp window. It is not yet running though.

  9. That's it! Next time your computer boots, TeamSpeak Server will start up immediately, before anyone logs on. We encourage you to edit TeamSpeak in AlwaysUp and check out the many other settings that may be appropriate for your environment.

TeamSpeak Server not working properly as a Windows Service?

  • Check the TeamSpeak log file for errors and warnings. The file will be in the logs sub-folder (in the directory where you placed TeamViewer Server).
  • From AlwaysUp, select Application > Report Activity > Today... to bring up a HTML report detailing the interaction between AlwaysUp and your application. The AlwaysUp Event Log Messages page explains the more obscure messages.
  • Review the AlwaysUp FAQ for answers to commonly asked questions and troubleshooting tips.
