Autostart Seafile Client before login

I know there is an option to autostart seafile client when user login.
But I have a Windows PC that needs to start Seafile before the user enters password.
So, let’s say, when the PC is turned on, seafile client is loaded and starts sync libraries even without user login.

Any hint on how to do this?

In other words, you want to run the Seafile client without Windows user login. This is possible. Just run the client as a Window service.

You find install instructions in the Seafile manual:

Is it possible in Linux too? To start the service before login to ubuntu etc?

NSSM - the Non-Sucking Service Manager pre-release build because stable does not work with Windows 10 Creators Update

This is written in Valdas's personal blog: Run Seafile Windows client as a background service

What about using task scheduler?

Well, and this is written on NSSM’s download site:

nssm should work under Windows 2000 or later. Specifically, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10 are supported.” (highlight NOT by me)

Why don’t you just try?
