Instead of using FireDaemon you could use my ownwritten service-wrapper
as well (for free, without limitations, its GPL'ed).

You can get it here http://members.chello.nl/p.schijndel2/daemon.zip

I've included two binary's, the smallest should be the fastest of the
two, if however that one shouldn't work try the largest one.
If the largest one doesn't work either, then I don't have a clue.

The included .ini-file is a sample configuration file.

I've installed the service in the daemon.ini file using the following
'daemon -file "C:\WINDOWS\system\SVC\daemon.ini" -i'

As you see I'm using the full path, this is because a relative path
doesn't work.

If you run the executable (in a console) without parameters it will give
you a list of commandline options. (though I must advise using as few as
possible at the same time)

If you would like the sourcecode, mail me, I might still have it somewhere.

Or in case of a 32-bit processor, use a pagefile of 4GB minus "physical
ram", at least don't use any more since your processor can't allocate it
As for a 64-bit processor, you can go higher than that if you'd like,
though it will rarely be nessecary (unless of course a new memory-leak
will be introduced).
