Pro tip: Running Vordel API Server analytics as a Windows service

If you've downloaded the Vordel API Server v7.1 from the Vordel website and want to configure it to run as a Windows service, it's quite simple to do this. The command is:

installservice.bat "C:\Vordel-7.1.0\analytics" "analytics" "7.1" analytics.xml

Where "analytics" is the name you want to give the service, and "7.1" is the version number. The installservice.bat script can be found under the /win32/bin folder of the API Server installation.
