Thank you,
But the steps described here are for Linux and not Windows:

Thank you Tanguy,
What's the difference if i run it as a service?

A Windows service runs also when nobody is logged in. You should definitely run Elasticsearch as a service.

Hi,
I want to interface elasticsearch with a software that extracts the keywords, focus... from a sentence. This can be done by runing elasticsearch as a service?!
Best regards

How Elasticsearch is run—as a service or not—does not affect what you can do with the software.
