I recently setup a remote sandbox server for the purpose of running Stack Manager. It’s within arms reach, but running it 24/7 for the last day I tunneled in to find that StackManager.exe had stopped running.
Ok, no problem I just manually restart it. But what if I wanted to do this on an entirely automated Scheduled Task (Windows 7 Pro x64). Could I not run something to check running process once a minute, and then ‘re-boot’ StackManager.exe in the event that it rage quits?
Even if I’m able to engage the .exe automatically, I still have the issue of pushing the big RED button to “Start” the processes / assignment-clients. So that would be another wall to get over.
Re: create a batch file upon startup to run the executable
Yeah, but that only gets me halfway there. For example, when running a crypto mining machine, you can tell Windows what programs to run at start up. So ideally, what I’m looking for in an analogous kind of way, is to author a .bat file that contains the needed commands to trigger the “Start” button AFTER the updating period (if any) and then tell Windows to run that at startup but ALSO, create a Scheduled Task that checks the alive status for StackManager.exe and subsequently run same .bat if dead.
