    Default Run CM on reboot

    I would like Campground Master to run automatically after a reboot so the database will be available 24x7 for Hercules online reservations. I have CM in the startup menu but this only works if someone is physically able to logon to the computer. We are a seasonal campground and do not staff the office on a daily basis in the off season. My Master computer is running Windows 7.
    I've searched through the forum and user documentation but did not find any recommendations. I google'd the question and it was suggested to use Task Manager. I can disable automatic updates to minimize reboots but I prefer to not do that unless absolutely necessary. Does anyone have an experience with keeping CM running 24x7 without requiring human intervention? Also if any Hercules users have any input on how well it is working for them I would appreciate the input.

    A Google search turns up a couple articles on skipping the Windows login screen (both suggest the same thing), maybe this will help:

    I wanted to update this thread to say the suggestions given by Stan worked perfectly. I've been running CM remotely for a couple of months and have not had any issues connecting to the Master.

    As for Hercules now owned by Leisure Interactive... I have absolutely nothing good to say about the company and have abandoned my attempt to use Hercules for interfacing to CM.
    Why? They only way to contact Leisure Interactive is via email. This works if the company has very good up to date documentation which Leisure Interactive has none. I sent in my required spreadsheet along with $500 to get setup since they don't allow the customer to setup their own environment. After 10 weeks of no action, I cancelled and went back to using Webreserv. Leisure Interactive did refund the $500.
