|Here's how I got it done:|
I remember a few months ago, I had problems getting MJ to work with a Win 7 box. To fix the Win 7 problem, I hit the MJ support website via text chat and after a big bunch of "plug it in" and "unplug it" torture tests (my USB ports are in the back of the box). They sent me a file called magicJackSetup.exe. When I right click this file it says, under the Details tab, magicjack Upgrade Component, File Version 2.0.6073.4252... Size 12.2 MB. To fix my 2008 Server Standard problem with MJ, I ran the magicjack Upgrade Component file they sent me under (right click file) and "Properties" choose it's "Compatibility" tab as "Windows XP SP3". It installed correctly and I saw the MJ splash screen, tried a call and it worked just fine! Next, to change the MJ app to a service, I used a program called MagicJack Service Creator 1.8 (free.. just Google it) and now MJ runs as a service (after I boot the Win 2008 Box and login) with no Splash screen when someone calls in or I call out. This service creator prog lets you convert MJ back to an app with one click if you need to look at the MJ splash screen to see what numbers you have called, or have called you.
