[Icecast] Unexpected shutdown of Icecast

I've been running 2.2.0 for more than 3 years now on a Win2K system and have had so little trouble with it, I hadn't considered upgrading  However it has mysteriously failed a few times.  I would get a report that it was down, log in remotely only to find that Icecast was not running.  I would restart it, report to the station manager that he or someone must have shut it down, and forget about it.

But just now, while doing some other maintenance on the system, I inadvertently shut it down myself and was so astounded that I had to do it again to prove that my action had really made it quit.

All I did was press the Escape key when Icecast had focus and it was gone.  Is there any good reason for it to shut down like that?  

I suppose that installing it as a service would take care of it, right?  I guess that would give me good reason to finally upgrade.

Is there an option on 2.3.2 during installation to install as a service?  If not, where would I find instructions?
