View Full Version : Hyper Vue - Rendercow

Hi Guys,

is it possible for the rendercow to run as a service?

it seems like when I log off one of the render machines, the rendercow is shutdown since it's running as a process and not a service

When you install the rendercow software, it asks if you want to have it run at startup. I think then it is always running. It does not use very much system resources, so they recommend that it be done this way. Since I only have one cow, I leave it off till I need it.

the 'startup' option is to load at the begining of the session, when you log on. i don't think you can get it to run independant from user login. [i may be wrong though.]

That's correct. When you close your user session the cow terminates itself. If you only switch to another user session without closing your session, it keeps on running.
