Installing and running


RoboTask can run in two modes:


As a regular application

As an NT service


An NT service is started together with the operating system and runs even if you are not logged on. If you correctly create your tasks and configure triggering events, it will be enough just to switch on the computer for RoboTask to start doing what it is supposed to do. This mode is important for those computers that are used as servers in your office.


The NT service mode is not available on the Windows 9x/Me platform. The NT service mode is not installed by default. In order to install the RoboTask service, you should use RoboTask Service Manager utility.

RoboTask Service Manager allows to start, stop RoboTask service, and make the initial adjustment of the service.
