Even though it's a bad idea to use Windows - especially for a server -, there are people who do (probably because they don't know what they're doing) and we should support running the CloudStore server as a Windows service.

Is there any workaround until this feature is implemented that users can do themselves to run CloudStore as a windows service?

You can give this service-wrapper from tanukisoftware a try (see URL above). It does not need any modifications of the application itself.

Additionally, you can use the Windows task scheduler to start the server automatically during system boot. Go into the "Control panel", then search for "schedule", click on "Schedule tasks", create a new task and select "At startup" in the trigger behind "Begin the task".

It's really a pity that Microsoft makes everything overly complicated (that's one of the many reasons why I don't use their software). In GNU/Linux every program can be run as a service (a.k.a. daemon).

Adding a service in Windows sucks. Ian Patterson agrees, and made the Non-Sucking Service Manager. I use it. It does not suck.
