Running node as a service

+1 vote
Hey all,

During development I find it a bit frustrating having to launch the main node everytime I want to do something.


I tried creating a service of it by placing "multichaind examplechainname -daemon" into a bat file and then create service by running "sc create examplechainname binpath= "C:\MultiChain\chain1.bat\"  ".

But this doesn't work, the service is created succesfully, but when I try to start it it immediately gives a egeneric error. Does anyone have experience with this?


Thanks in advance,

Can you explain why you're not just leaving the node running? That is usually how MultiChain is used.

Mainly the risk that I accidentally close the command window and then the entire network stops.
Understood. You might find this page helpful for general guidance on running Windows commands (like multichaind) in the background:
