    Re: Control panel when running as a service

    Since Windows Vista Windows users aren't allowed to interact directly with programs running as a service. This can be solved by having a second program that communicates with the service in an alternative way, but the current version of Mercury does unfortunately not support that. Mercury v5 will though, and we hope to start beta testing it soon. Until v5 arrives the options are to run Mercury as a service under Windows XP, or to shut down the service and run Mercury in application mode to access console windows and configuration. The application will then need to be shut down again before restarting the service.
