Subject Re: Installing fbServer as automatic service
Author Anand
Thanks, both to Paul and Olivier :-)

Paul, you are right that we shouldn't be using an RC once it has
superseeded, but frankly I wasn't aware RC6 was out

A readymade InnoSetup script would of course be great, but I
have already
made it for my purpose, so if the same set of files is required
in RC6 as in
RC5, I think I can go ahead without waiting for the script :-)

Thanks to both of you once again,

What's more Anand, there are indeed switches to set the service
manual (-d == demand-start) or automatic startup (-a automatic).
And for
RC6 the default was changed from 'manual' to 'automatic'.
