I am not aware of any Service Install that uses SetiDriver. Whenever I get questions about Service Installs I have been able to provide this link as my best source of "possible" answers.

If there is a way to install SetiDriver as a "Service" I really wish someone would post how to do it. :)

My SETI service installation files uses SETI Driver. The W2k version will work on NT 4.0 as well. I do have a modified version that I'm using with Windows XP. Just remember to replace the userinfo.sah with your own otherwise you'll donate workunits to my name;)

Here's how I do it.:)
Put instsrv.exe and srvany.exe into C:\Windows\system32 for Windows XP or C:\WINNT\system32 for Windows 2000 or NT 4.
Then create a subdirectory C:\Windows\system32\sah or C:\WINNT\system32\sah.
Place your SETI Driver files into the sah subdirectory. Run SETI Driver to configure it the way you want it.
Then install SETI Driver as service using instsrv.exe and srvany.exe.
You then go to services and start the service.

I do have the set of files in a zip format with an installation batch file available, just follow the direction. The zip files were updated and SETI Driver is set to low priority/force idle.:)

Err.. anyone?

I seriously doubt there will be any more work on SetiDriver with the end of it's useful life so near. If you think you can fix it ... give it a go. ;)

I don't think the problem is that critical. When EXPLORER crashes it is probably a good time to REBOOT anyway. :p :D

Ekeka, Mahalo Nui Loa! :D

Now where can I (We) get this zip file? :D

Since you have answered my original question so handily ... here is one more request:

Can the above routine be constructed in such a way that will facilitate its installation on a very large LAN (consisting of hundreds of computers)? :Q

I see what Isos has done.... It requires that each PC be configured manually... however if you (the end user) create a unique installation you could concievably intsall across a large LAN.

If I understand this correctly the only problem is that the first WU will end up being crunched by all of the LAN computers resulting in duplicates. But if it gets things going IMHO it will definitely be worth the redundant WUs :)

Thanks for trying to come up with some things so far, guys, but in order for me to reinstall this on my network again I need something invisible and quick like Flexinstaller. I DO NOT want a tray icon on these PCs. Is there some freeware app that you can permanently change the Process Priority Class and Thread Priority Class on computers on your Windows domain as long as you have admin priviledges? If you can find me that tool, I will try this on a few machines and see if it works properly. Also, how can I view what the Process Priority Class and Thread Priority Class for particular tasks are so I can make sure they are at that priority?

The SetiDriver Service Install that Is0s has outlined will do what you want. :)
