JRun Servers as Windows Services

A user e-mailed me to ask how to define JRun server instances as Windows services (so that they autostart). In case others need this same information, JRun comes with a utility named jrunsvc that is used for just this purpose. Documentation for jrunsvc can be found at

    Sometimes ColdFusion services won’t start as a service. This is because insufficient time is being allowed for it to start. There is another jrunsrv function to fix this:
    jrunsvc.exe -starttimeout 900 "ColdFusion MX Application Server"
    The documentation for this functionality is located here:
