How to setup & install NSSM (the non-sucking service manager)

Download NSSM

  1. Head over to the NSSM Website
  2. Download a release:
  • Latest Release: Stable, tested, but older.
  • Feature Pre-Release: Newer, less stable, likely to have more features & capabilities.
  1. Make a new folder somewhere easy to access. I personally recommend C:\NSSM.
  2. Extract the contents of the downloaded .zip file into your new folder. Make sure that what you extract is the contents, looking something like:

  6. Select Browse Step 6
  7. Find either the win64 or win32 folder inside your NSSM directory. Select that one and you're good to go.
