Editing the registry is apparently the way you have to do it.  See e.g.
http://www.cincomsmalltalk.com/documentation/current/WebServerConfig.pdf (&
search for srvany.exe).  But in the registry (as explained in
WebServerConfig.pdf) you can supply a command line and there-in include a
command-line parameter to tell the VM it is being run as a service.

Windows, an enterprise-ready operating system... with drive letters.  Yeah,
