Running Bonkey on Windows Vista

One of Bonkey's users, Biskits, figured out how to get Bonkey running on Vista and kindly shared the following tips (monkey see, monkey do!):
  1. Install Bonkey.
  2. Go into the Windows MMC (Microsoft Management Console) > Services, and check that the Bonkey Service is "Automatic" and "Started". If yes, close the MMC and go to Step #4. If not, go to Step # 3.
  3. Set the Bonkey Service to "Automatic" and "Start", close the MMC, and re-boot.
  4. In Windows Explorer, navigate to C:\Program Files\Bonkey\ and locate the following 2 executable files: Bonkey.exe, and wrapper.exe. For each file, Right click, select "Properties" > "Compatibility" > and place a check-mark in "Run as Administrator". Close Explorer.
  5. Open Bonkey, and configure your back-ups. When you close the UI, the Service will run effectively according to schedule.
Thanks for the instructions, Biskits! Thanks for being so complicated, Vista!
