      NSSM - The Non-Sucking Service Manager vs Always Up
      pros, cons and recent comments
      ferenczy NSSM doesn't have a GUI, it's command-line only but very easy to use. The only allows you to install any executable as a Windows service and to start/stop/configure/remove any Windows service (even those not installed by NSSM). Everything else is left up to the Windows Service manager. Simple but sufficient.

      Little file; Easy to use; One command in the admin prompt using the command line guide from the website and everything works great. You just need to store this one file on a place because it will be "in use" when the PC starts.

      Turbo Service Manager vs Always Up
      pros, cons and recent comments
      TSM is only a service manager, it is not capable to configure an application to run as a service which is the main purpose of AlwaysUp
