How To: Setup Gizmo Service
Posted by Panagiotis Mantzouranis on 24 May 2017 05:17 PM

If you are importing a Smartlaunch 4.x or a Gizmo v1 Database, make sure you run the Gizmo Importer Tool first


STEP 1: Run "Gizmo Service Configuration Wizard" shortcut on the desktop

If the shortcut is missing, use start→run "C:\Program Files (x86)\NETProjects\Gizmo Service\ConfigurationTool.exe" /wizard

This will start the Gizmo configuration tool in "1st run" mode.



STEP 2Select installed Database type & fill in details. Do not create a Database after installing SQL Server, Gizmo will create the database automatically.

If you have already created a database using Gizmo v2 importer, or if you are migrating from another server enter previous database’s name


 STEP 3Enter your Gizmo account credentials. Visit to create an account


  STEP 4: Commit settings and proceed to Service installation


 STEP 5 (optional): Service installation

    • Gizmo Service can run as a Windows Service or as a desktop application. As service, the Module will start with windows, no user login required.
    • To install Gizmo Service as Windows Service, you need to provide Windows Credentials of an Administrator User.
    • As an application, you need to manually launch Gizmo Service using the "Console Mode" desktop shortcut, or add it to the startup folder.
