Under Microsoft Windows, starts the FairCom Server in background, displaying only a c-tree icon in the Windows tool tray. This feature can also be activated with the ampersand, ‘&’, character on the command line. For example:
The server waits until it has created the transaction logs, performed automatic recovery if necessary, and initialized the communication subsystem before displaying the balloon tip. This makes it easier for a developer or a server administrator to know the point in time at which c-tree Server is ready to accept connections.
