I don't see why Windows updates is an issue. Make the program run as a service and it will run without anyone logged in. When the update finishes, it reboots and the services all start.
how do you make a program run as a service? If you do that is it available as normal after log in?

The "program" will be available to the local computer once you log in using your browser...or via remote computer if you enable that feature whenever...even without logging in on the server computer.

You just run CMX with the -install parameter and it will set itself up as a service that autostarts on boot. And -uninstall removes it again, doh!  :lol:

Excitement growing here. Mast arrived yesterday and the posts are ready

I am going for 20 feet in height for the anemometer and today's task is to get a more accurate height for the highest trees. Time for some trigonometry!

So true, luckily as far as I can see this one has reached its natural limit!

the answer was 60-70 feet so my planned site seems to be 2x that distance and OK
