Since Windows Vista, 2008, Windows 7 and Windows 8 have a free way to start programs without a startup, there will be no compatible version of the RunAsservice add-on.
On these systems, BackUp Maker/Synchredible can be started and allowed to run without the user being logged on. The program therefore functions as a Windows controlled service, which can run Backups/Synchronizations whether the user is logged on.
To do this, simply change the "BackUp_Maker" or "Synchredible" task in Windows Task Scheduler as follows:
The “Run whether the user is logged on” option must be activated instead of “Run only when the user is logged on”.
In addition, the trigger "On start" must be selected under "Trigger" tab instead of "On login".
The system should be restarted following the changes. Alternatively, you can exit BackUp Maker/Synchredible and start the task you just changed.
Note that the tray icon of BackUp Maker/Synchredible is not displayed with this type of execution. The program runs almost as a service in the background. It is therefore essential to select the option to send the report by e-mail to be informed whether the created backup/synchronization jobs have been carried out correctly.
Important: To process jobs, you must end the current task via Windows Task Scheduler and restart BackUp Maker/Synchredible from the user’s desktop where the software is to be installed. After all changes have been made, BackUp Maker/Synchredible should be exited completely and the task restarted via the Windows Task Scheduler.
