I'm not actually sure if this is possible but I have three programs I want to run when the server starts. The thing is I would like it if they ran without anyone actually logging in. Right now I RDP into the server, start the three programs, then disconnect without logging out so they keep running.

Depends if the programs actually support being started as a service. – Ramhound Feb 13 '13 at 14:53
If you put that as the answer I'll mark it accepted. – Jhorra Feb 13 '13 at 14:55
Its not detailed enough to be an answer. I don't make a habit of posting single sentence answers if I cannot expand on the information and/or provide alternate solutions. – Ramhound Feb 13 '13 at 15:00
That does answer my question though, they aren't services. You can expand on it a little if you want to say make sure it's a service as they are the only thing you can start that way. – Jhorra Feb 13 '13 at 15:07
