Troubleshooting - How to run QRemote Server as a Service

Problem Description:

I have noticed that when I run the QRemote server on my server, the server also shuts down if I log out of my session. Is there a way to get the QRemote server to run as a service and not be affected by user activity on the system console?


QODBC uses the QuickBooks SDK, and QuickBooks SDK uses QuickBooks Application to get data from company files.

QuickBooks SDK requires an active desktop session (someone to be logged in) to the machine because QuickBooks is a desktop-based application. QODBC & QRemoteServer is not a service-based application; a desktop-based Windows application cannot be run as a service.

QuickBooks required Active Desktop Session for running. You need to log in to the server & run QuickBooks to work with QODBC. If no one logs on to the server, you will get the error "Could not start QuickBooks," So I would like to suggest that server needs Active Desktop Session & QuickBooks in running mode for proper functionality.

Please keep QuickBooks running (No need to log in to the company file, save the QuickBooks window open) and try to connect.
