I am also working on running Jetty as a service. Demian is correct that the instructions in http://vufind.org/wiki/starting_and_stopping_vufind#windows_method4 are not entirely up to date for the latest version of Windows. Specifically, on a 64 bit Windows Server 2008, the error appears to be that the Java Service Wrapper included with Jetty in VuFind is for 32-bit systems only.
There is a 64-bit version available from http://wrapper.tanukisoftware.com/doc/english/download.jsp but it’s not available in the free Community Edition, only the paid Professional and Standard editions.
There is also a project Yet Another Java Service Wrapper ( http://yajsw.sourceforge.net/ ) that purports to have a stable 32 and 64 bit but migrating to it would take a bit of effort.
Thought I’d email the list to see if anyone else is running VuFind/Jetty as a service on Windows Server 2008 and whether they pursued any other paths than the above.

There are some instructions in the wiki about this:
I haven’t tested these instructions in a long time, so it’s possible they may not be accurate for the latest version of Windows. If you run into problems, please let me know!
