Add ability to run Tor as Windows service
Now, when Vidalia is not available anymore, what do you think about including simple *.bat file, that add Tor.exe as Windows service to autostart?
command inside this bat file should be
sc.exe create <new_service_name> binPath= "<path_to_the_service_executable>"
But this will require to build Tor.exe with special main function:
VOID WINAPI ServiceMain( In DWORD dwArgc, In LPTSTR *lpszArgv );
Or it could be a simplest wrapper running Tor.exe
So people wouldn't need to run it every time from console. After running this script Tor will be added as a service and will be started automatically on reboot.
This bug inspired by personal experience, after killing Vidalia and a questions in the internet:
