    Running in Logoff

    I have a program that executes a function every 10 minutes via a timer control. This program is to run on a Windows 2000 Server.

    My Question is:

    Will this still execute is the user is logged off ?
    --Most admins leave the server in the logged off state.

    Do a search on MSDN for Windows Services...these can run in a special "system" account that doenst need normal users to be logged on......but that account has certain access restrictions by default, so success depends on what you wish to do
