Use this executable to start and stop a local Uniface Router, or install or remove the Uniface Router as a service. By default, it is located in the bin subdirectory.

It is not possible to stop a remote Uniface Router using the /stop or /shut command. For more information, see Stop and Start the Uniface Router.

On Windows, you can use the /inst switch to install multiple Uniface Routers as separate services, each one registered with a unique service name. For more information, see Install a Uniface Router on Windows.

When running urouter from the command line on Microsoft Windows, you need to start the Windows Command Prompt app as administrator (choose Run as Administrator from the context menu).
