Here’s how to install Duplicati as a Windows Service

  1. Download Duplicati from HERE.
  2. During install don’t mark “Auto Start up” option
  3. Open CMD as admin
    • Search for CMD
    • Right click on CMD
    • Click “Run as admin”
  4. Navigate to the installation folder in CMD (this should be the same as long as you left it as default)
    • cd "C:\Program Files\Duplicati 2\
  5. Now we will install the service
    • .\Duplicati.WindowsService.exe install
  6. Now restart your computer (this isn’t needed, but it’s a good way to test)
  7. Now it should be running.
  8. Go to http://localhost:8200/ngax/index.html
  9. You might have to reconfigure things since Duplicati is no longer running as your user and is running as a system user.
