Hi @lprada,

I assume that you are referring to a Windows Runner?

I'm not sure how to keep the execution in the background, but if you don't mind running it in the foreground you can do the following:

1. Find the location where you unzipped, let's say this is


2. Create a .cmd file in your computer, named e.g. startRunner.cmd with the following content:

cd C:\Users\<My_User>\Documents\atlassian-bitbucket-pipelines-runner\bin & powerShell C:\Users\<My_User>\Documents\atlassian-bitbucket-pipelines-runner\bin\start.ps1 -accountUuid '{.....}' -runnerUuid '{.....}' -OAuthClientId ..... -OAuthClientSecret ..... -workingDirectory '..\temp'


  • C:\Users\<My_User>\Documents replace with the directory where atlassian-bitbucket-pipelines-runner is located
  • the arguments given after C:\Users\<My_User>\Documents\atlassian-bitbucket-pipelines-runner\bin\start.ps1 in the content should be copied from the preconfigured runner command you were given when you created the Windows Runner from Bitbucket website

You can then create a scheduled task in Windows to run the file startRunner.cmd every time your Windows user or another user logs in to Windows.

Kind regards,
