What programs(s) need to stay open?

Hi. First, thanks Gary for creating this option/solution to allow us to still use WMC. Everything seems to be working well, and the listings are updated on a schedule.

I just have a quick question. What program or programs do I need to leave open for everything to work? Both the config tool and client or just the client?

I tried searching in the forum, and looking through the setup guide again, but couldn't find an answer. Thanks.

Nothing needs to remain open. In fact, if you leave the configuration GUI open it won't update. Your scheduled task will execute the program(s) as needed to keep your guide updated.
