I'm looking for a good way to run LightTPD as a service on a Windows server, but all the solutions I can find are either general-purpose shareware or quite complicated to set up.

Is there any good and easy way to accomplish this?

I don't know why this is on stack overflow, but to summarize:

There's a free tool called RunAsService. With it, you should be able to configure a .bat or other executable to be launched as a service.

I actually ended up using ServiceRunner which basically does the same thing. This is the batch file that I had to use -- the /D parameter states the working directory for the command, which was apparently very important for it to work at all! –  damd Oct 22 '12 at 15:16
