Allway Sync is a storage application that allows users to backup, sync and share files. The client can be run as a Windows Service using FireDaemon Pro, which allows you to have the application start automatically at boot prior to login, start multiple instances of the application and more. This HOWTO will show you how to set it up. You can also use Fusion to manage FireDaemon and other Windows services via a web browser.

Allway Sync Setup Under FireDaemon Pro

Download the latest Allway Sync files from the official website.

Run the installer. By default, the software installs to C:\Program Files\Allway Sync.

Run Allway Sync once to set up your preferences.

Download and install FireDaemon Pro into the directory of your choice, typically C:\Program Files\FireDaemon.

Next start the FireDaemon GUI from the desktop shortcut. Click on the "Create a new service definition" button in the toolbar (or type Ctrl+N) and enter the information into the fields as you see below. Adjust the paths to suit your installation.

  • Executable: The path to the syncappw.exe file. The default path is C:\Program Files\Allway Sync\Bin\syncappw.exe.
  • Working Directory: The directory containing the syncappw.exe file. The default path is C:\Program Files\Allway Sync\Bin.
  • Parameters: None. Leave this field blank.

Now click on the Settings tab. If you DON'T want to see Allway Sync running, uncheck the Interact with Desktop check box & select “Hidden” from the “Show Window” dropdown. You may optionally run Allway Sync as the user you installed it as. In the Logon Account field type your username (e.g. Administrator) and then enter the user's password twice in the Password and Confirm fields. You can change the Process Priority to allocate more CPU time to Allway Sync or specify which CPU or core Allway Sync will run on (in the case of multi-processor, hyperthreaded or multi-core CPUs).

Now click OK to finish setup and start Allway Sync!
