Add-On Windows Service
The Add-On Windows Service allows !MC5 to run as a Windows service in the background, without user login. This prevents accidental changes of settings or termination of the application by logged in users. The Windows Service continuously monitors, using various methods, that there is always an instance of !MC5 active to minimize unwanted downtime and ensure that you are always available to your business partners.
When using the add-on, !MC5 runs in background mode with particularly low resource consumption, which among other things further increases system stability. Nevertheless, the logs can be viewed via the log evaluation even during background operation. In addition, important events can optionally be recorded in the Windows event log to integrate them into your existing monitoring.
Switching to the GUI version of !MC5 is possible at any time by simply launching !MC5. Access via client application or web browser using the Add-Ons Client/Server or HTTP Client is also possible at any time during background operation.
