          Copy JavaService.exe to your JBOSS_HOME/bin directory.
          Rename it to JBossService.exe

          Follow directions here:
          http://wiki.jboss.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=RunJBossAsAServiceOnWindows

          If you need to modify the service - ie: java option (min memory/max memory, etc), jboss option, change location of jvm, etc - you can open up your registry editor and go to this location:

          My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\%name_of_your _JBoss_service%\Parameter

          Again... only modify the registry entries if you are absolutely certain of what you're doing. If not, then follow the directions to remove the service and then reinstall it.

            first of all thanx for the reply...

            I uesd the following command to create the service:

            JBossService.exe -install JBossAll C:\jdk1.5.0_06\jre\bin\jvm.dll -Djava.class.path=C:\jdk1.5.0_06\lib\tools.jar;C:\JBOSS\run.jar -start org.jboss.Main -params -c all -stop org.jboss.Main -method systemExit -out C:\JBOSS\stdout.log -err C:\JBOSS\stderr.log -current C:\JBOSS -manual

            When i tried to run the service, i got the following msg

            The JBossAll Service on Local Computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they have no work to do, for example, the performance Logs and Alerts service.

            --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

            Please check if i have done anything wrong

              I assume that since you have the "-params -c all" option, you renamed the 'default' folder underneath your %JBOSS_HOME%/server directory to 'all'? If so... did you do this because you have more than one JBoss instance running on this server?

              I would also check to make sure that you have a jvm.dll in your C:\jdk1.5.0_06\jre\bin directory. From what I can tell on both our JBoss servers (and from the directory structure after the installation of the Java SDK), the jvm.dll is separated into %JAVA_HOME%\jre\bin\{server or client}\jvm.dll

              Everything else looks OK.

                HI,

                I am getting the same error, I am trying to run JBOSS 4.3 as a windows service.
                The jvm.dll path and other option that you suggested are correct.
                Have you solved the problem?
                Can anybody please guide me to get through this.

                Thanks
                Vishal

                    vishalbakare, what software are you using run JBossAS as a service? Tanuki Java Service? JBoss Native? Or some other (please provide a URL if neither of these two)? Each software uses different mechanism to configure the service.

                      Starting JBoss AS 4, 5, and 6 as a Windows service is still topical. Unfortunately, most of the internet resources regarding this issue are not up-to-date or even disappeared in the meantime.

                      For that reason I wrote a step-by-step guide that can be found here: http://www.lukas.tech/en/blog/run-jboss-as-as-a-windows-service/
