Installing as a service issues - Windows 10

Post by boker » 15 Jul 2020, 16:39

Hello,

I'm having some trouble installing NZBGet as a service on Windows 10. Specifically I'm getting this error: ''nzbget' is not recognized as an internal or external command' when I run the 'nzbget-command-shell.bat'.

Any ideas? I checked my services and it's definitely not installed as a service already. I feel like I am being dumb since I cannot find anywhere online where people have had the same issue as me.

I also tried re-installing NZBGet to see if that would help but it did not.

Any help is appreciated :)

"nzbget-command-shell.bat" just opens a command prompt in the directory where nzbget is installed.
If for whatever reason the batch file doesn't work you can instead start the command prompt and then change current directory to installation path of nzbget. Then you can execute nzbget.exe from command prompt.
