Log into it and ensure Air Video Server is running.
Go to Start, Switch User or Lock the Account

This will keep the program running all the time and accessible remotely.

I understand that it may burn resources to keep that account locked but how bad do you want to watch videos super easily?

Have fun.


And what if your computer reboots? Automatic patching, power outage, etc?
Tried the task but wasn't working well for WHS v1. Will keep this in mind when I move to v2. Waiting for a drive pool solution
I am running Windows Home Server and installed and configured Air Video Server to run as a service with the steps below.

1) Logged in as Administrator. Installed Air Video Server, Java, and Bonjour and configured. Unchecked Start at Login under settings. Quit Air Video Server.

2) You can get rktools.exe to install the Windows Resource Kit, but you only really need instsrv.exe and srvany.exe.

3) Using the default path where the resource kit is installed, run cmd and enter

"C:\Program Files\Windows Resource Kits\Tools\instsrv.exe" "Air Video Server" "C:\Program Files\Windows Resource Kits\Tools\srvany.exe"

If you have those two files somewhere else, just adjust the path accordingly. Make sure that there are no errors reported and close the window.

4) Run regedit and go to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Current Control Set\Services\Air Video Server
Right click the Air Video Server key, choose New>Key, and name it Parameters.
Now in the Parameters key, right click, choose New>String Value, and name it Application.
Double click the Application value and set it to

"C:\Program Files\AirVideoServer\AirVideoServer.exe"

5) Click start, run, services.msc and enter. Right click the Air Video Server service and select properties. Under the Logon tab, change the account to administrator and enter the password. Save everything and start the service.
