WINDOWS SERVICE PARAMETERS

I am creating a windows service that requires parameters to start. The
service Startup Type is set to automatic therefore it starts when the
computer is started or rebooted. However the service fails because the
parameters do not persist.

If the service is started manually and the parameters entered it starts and
runs correctly. If the computer is rebooted the service attempts to start
but fails because the parameters are not used to start the service. Are the
start parameters just lost.

How can I overcome this?.

Personally I use the reg to get my start up parameters so this is not a
problem with me but have you tried setting the start up parameters in the
Services properties?

John

Yes I have tried adding the "Parameters " subkey in the registery and then
added a value called AppParameters. This does not work.

What is the best way that anyone has found to capture errors inside a windows service? It's pointless to use compilation constants, as you can't "debug" a service very easily, and you can't pass in a command line arguement (can you?) to tell it to do something special like capture errors to a file while it's running. Has anyone figured out any good ways to do this type of run-time error capturing? Basically, if I were building a...

When to use a privileged user thread rather than a windows service? That's the question raised in a previous post . It was suggested that if the service needs to interact with a WinForms app (which is the UI used to adjust the actions taken by, and the schedule of the service), then a privileged user thread should be used in the UI - no service required.

Hello everyone. Pardon me for my basic questions about windows services.. Is a windows service a stand alone system with no interaction with outside environment? Can a windows sevice have an interface which it can use as an output? Can a windows service take user parameters before/while running?

Hi... After I installed my .net windows service, I tried to control some of the behavior with the Start Parameters: in the services control parameter. I can put a value in the box but for some reason it never gets saved (I open the properties right after, and the box is empty). How does one persist a value in the Start Parameters box for a service? Thanks

Hi, I have 2 applications running, one Windows application project and the other windows services project. I want to call my Windows application in my windows services. I want to run them as seperate process. If my windows application starts running,only if it completes fully, then my windows services should continue its execution. My main process is Windows service.
