FileMaker Server starting without login

Your post


My boss is considering buying the FileMaker Server, but, we have a question unanswered yet! This maybe a silly question for You guys but its bothering us.

Can a Filemaker server, and how, be setup to start on a machine start-up, BUT without logging in in to Window? 

We have borrowed a server 11 advanced licence from a friend not using it right now, and we have tried to make it do so, but haven't been successful. It is running on a Windows 7 professional computer, our server is on Windows Server 2008 R2, but no testing on server allowed! 

Being that we need to return the borrowed licence in the next few days, I would like to know is it a option or not, so we can test it, because if it is not possible, from our point of view, we would not buy a Server license, as a Filemaker pro license with the sharing on is doing the same for us.
