[wpkg-users] Running WPKG as a service

Hi all,

I've set up WPKG on my Samba server (mainly to install Thunderbird and 
Firefox as it's rather tedious having to manually reinstall these every 
time an update comes out).

Now I followed the instructions to install a service with srvany at 

to the letter and at first install it works- wpkg kicks off cscript, 
runs wpkg.js from the server share and packages install.

However if I then make changes to the config in packages.xml and then 
reboot the machine, the service runs (Srvany.exe appears in task 
manager) but it doesn't spawn any processess. If I then restart the WPKG 
service it does a resync.

Is there any way to get it to start the service at user logon so that 
the service is properly spawned?
