Create custom Windows services allowing you to start, stop and restart any application program or script as a Windows service.
No Login Required

Themeable UI and Command Line
Customise the FireDaemon Pro GUI and command line with your own company name, product name, executable names, executable icons and GUI graphics.
Implicit Log Rolling
Apply wildcards to the debug, stdout and stderr log files to ensure debug and output capture is logged to files on a daily basis.
Templatised Service Configuration
Customise the FireDaemon Pro service configuration template to ensure every service you create has the same default settings.
Self Completing Tasks
Configure your program to terminate gracefully. Integrate with a schedule to run at specific times.
Session 0 Program Interactivity
Switch to Session 0 to see the interactive components of your application running under FireDaemon Pro control.
Harden your FireDaemon Pro Windows services by specifying a security identifier to set a security principal or security group.
If your program spawns multiple subprocesses then placing it in a Job Group will ensure all subprocesses are terminated when the service / program is stopped or restarted.
Run your service using default inbuild Windows credentials or specify local, domain, MSA, gMSA or virtual account credentials.
Run your program with a specific priority, bind your program to specific SMP cores or NUMA nodes.
Real Time Process Monitoring
Inbuilt process monitoring to allow you to configure exactly what happens when your program terminates or quits.
Flap, Fail and Freeze Detection
Respond to program flap (rapid start/crash), fail (recurring terminations) and freeze (application hangs) events.
Structured Service Shutdown
Shutdown your application gracefully by sending shutdown keystrokes or command events to your program.
Wait for other Windows services to terminate before commencing shutdown of your FireDaemon Pro service.
Windows Event Log Logging
