How to setup the bitbucket runner on windows so it starts at reboot or autmatically?

the current documentation for bitbucket runner on windows starts the runner with a powershell script. 


Can there be more documentation for starting this either as a windows service or a script that will work from the task scheduler triggered at startup?

There are lots of ways to tackle this problem. First 'compile' your PS script into an executable file. You can do this natively in Windows without any third-party tools. A script commonly known as "ps2exe" can help you do this.

Then, once you have an .exe, there are numerous ways available for running an executable as a Windows service, also can be done without any third-party software.


Keep in mind that when running a Powershell script or any non-native Windows application as a 'Windows service', it may not properly respond to to the commands issued by the service manager services.msc, such as 'stop', 'start', etc.

I'll have to find where the batch file is for Bitbucket, but if you already have it, you can follow this guide for help on setting it up on a scheduled task.
