I'm executing the latest Neo4j release - downloaded and installed last week.
Neo4j Desktop works. I can view the Movie graph and I created a graph for my project.
Neoj Browser works and I can view both graphs in the browser.
I developed C# code that reads my project graph and executes cypher.
In short, everything works as expected and I'm thrilled.
However, I can't leave Neo4j Desktop executing perpetually.
At some point, Neo4J needs to execute standalone so I can connect to it from my code without the Desktop executing..
Thinking I needed to run neo4j as a service, I download and installed it as a service from the console folder.
However, when Neo4j desktop is not executing, I cannot connect to either database because they are stopped when I close Neo4j desktop,
How do I start my database without neo4j desktop executing?
Maybe my approach is incorrect. I assumed Neo4j Desktop was similar to say, Sql Server Management Studio (SSMS) which executes independently from the Sql Server database service. In other words, SSMS doesn't need to be executing to connect and access the Sql Service instance and databases.
I apologize for missing the answer I seek in the documentation because it's probably obvious to everyone else.
