What is it?

KeepUpApp is a Power-user tool to keep your applications and services running, where they may be stopping/crashing for undetermined reasons.
This is achieved by continuously checking if the executable or service is still running, and starting the application or service if it's not found running.
KeepUpApp handles 32 bit and 64 bit applications, and services, on the local computer. It currently does not handle applications or services on remote systems.
If any 64 bit applications are configured, a 64 bit instance is extracted from the main executable (if not already found in the current directory), that checks these 64 bit applications.
This extracted 64 bit executable is removed when KeepUpApp is stopped.

KeepUpApp should be run as an Administrator (or equivalent) to have sufficient permissions for checking applications and services.

KeepUpApp was developed for the N.A.N.Y 2013 event, as organized by the forum community
