Windows client command line and config file

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to figure out the way to run Windows client as a service. I'm planning to use nssm.exe for this. The problem is that I need to supply a configuration to BTSync.exe when it's running as a service.

I looked through the web site for command line syntax and only found '--help' and '--dump-simple-config'. Both of them do not seem to work with Windows client, as well as the standard Windows '/?' .

My questions are:

Does Windows client has command line options? If yes, what are they ?

What is the recommended way to run Windows client as a service ?

version: 1.0.116

Windows version doesn't have a CLI. There were some workarounds to run Sync as service, but it didn't work for everyone.

We plan to add CLI to windows and ability to run Sync as service.

At present, command line options are only available on Linux/NAS devices.

There isn't an "official" way to run BTSync as a Windows service - but this has been requested a number of times in the forum, and there is another thread on this topic here. The developers are aware of this desire! Hopefully the ability to run BTSync as a service will emerge soon, although last I heard there was no specific ETA for this feature.
