It is possible to run the sync app as either a Windows Service (default) or as a Console application.

📌TIP: Not sure whether to use a console or service application?

If your company file is on the same PC/Server as Sage 50 or QuickBooks Desktop, then the standard installation generally does not need any alterations. The service will run in the background and should restart every time the PC/Server is started.

When running as a Console application, you would need to open and log into the sync app each time you want to publish invoices from AutoEntry to Sage/QuickBooks.

📎NOTE: .NET Framework 4.8 + is required. For more information, take a look at the Sync App System Requirements.
