We run announcer on our Win-911 server for local announcements. We would like it to run as a service so we don't have to login every time the system is rebooted to restore local announcements. This may also be useful for systems that run elsewhere to do announcements, otherwise we run the risk of losing the functionality if someone forgets to log back in.
We would have liked to run Announcer as a service, but services come with limitations when interacting with the desktop, including playing sounds. In other words, we were unable to run the Announcer as a service.
The only solution I could suggest is to set the workstation to auto login and lock the screen.
