I guess that when you install the Service under the System Account (you need
Administrator privileges), everything works fine, because System Services
even run when no one is logged in. (like Peer Web Services, etc). We run
almost everything under the System Account, but then again, it's my own
computer, and not everyone has Administrator privileges.

rc5v2p5 plain I guess. The Service-program takes care of "hidden"...

To address the other follow-up talking about win32-apps, rc5v2 isn't a
win32app, it's just a 32-bits app. Am I right? There's nothing graphical at
all in rc5v2...
