    v21 v22  
    6363 * Windows startstop and Windows startstop service read a configuration file named 'startstop_nt.d' 
    6464 * If Windows starts up, and, for example, the binary executables for certain modules are missing or are misnamed, startstop will start up anyway. These processes will be shown with a nonexistent negative process ID, and "NoExec" as their status. If this process is restarted once the problem that caused the error has been fixed, the process ID will return to a normal ID, and the status will change to "Alive". 
    65  * Startstop can be set to start automatically when Windows boots up (see below: 'Earthworm NT Autostart'), but probably better than doing that is to set startstop as a Windows service (see below: Earthworm Windows Service). Note if you set Startstop as a Windows service you'll need to use other command line utilities like 'status' and 'restart' to monitor and control earthworm modules since there's no interface to the Startstop service. You can run StartstopConsole in order to be able to connect to the session running earthworm, if you're not logged in as administrator (see below: StartstopConsole Overview). You'll be able to start and stop Earthworm with the Windows Services Control Panel.
