The forum will be down for maintenance over the weekend of August 18-20, 2017. The forum will be shut down on the evening (EDT) of Friday, August 18. Downtime is unknown but may be up to two days. The forum will be restarted as soon as maintenance is complete.

Are there any restrictions or incompatibilities to watch for? (using 16.0.0.2419 on Windows 7)

The Help says "-i Displays an icon that you can double-click to display the database server messages window." but no such icon or window appears when the following service is started (otherwise, everything is OK).

Update: This exhortation from Microsoft seems to say I'm doomed to failure:
Services cannot directly interact with a user as of Windows Vista. Therefore, the techniques mentioned in the section titled Using an Interactive Service should not be used in new code.

Well, as v16 still supports Windows XP, option -i should work there as expected...

V17 does not support Windows XP and Vista, and the docs tell that for option -i:

Note
As of Windows Vista, this is no longer available.

Just saying:)
