Installing T.Bridge under Windows

  1. Unpack T.Bridge distributive to %ProgramFiles%\TASSTA\Bridge folder.
    Note: You can choose an alternative installation folder.
  2. Modify the configuration. It is recommended to use a custom configuration file name to ensure it is not overwritten with the default configuration when T.Bridge is updated.
  3. Download the latest release of NSSM.
  4. Extract NSSM archive under C:\Program Files. The latest release (version 2.24) will be unpacked under C:\Program Files\nssm-2.24.
  5. Open a command prompt as Administrator.
  6. Execute a command:
    "%ProgramFiles%\nssm-2.24\win64\nssm" install "TASSTA Bridge" "%ProgramFiles%\TASSTA\Bridge\bridge3.exe" "-cfg bridge.cfg"
    Note: This command assumes that T.Bridge is located in the default installation folder (C:\Program Files\TASSTA\Bridge) and the configuration is stored in the file bridge.cfg. Adjust the command line parameters if necessary.
  7. Start TASSTA Bridge service.
    You can do it from the command line: "%ProgramFiles%\nssm-2.24\win64\nssm" start "TASSTA Bridge".
Note:
