stopping for instance, a necessary parameter or object is missing or failed
and is discovered in the OnStart method of System.ServiceProcess.ServiceBase.

in Run() and call SetServiceStatus(SERVICE_STOP_PENDING, ...
In C# I don't see a method that would signal the SCM (SERVICE_STOP_PENDING,
or any other message id) or a method to pass a message via the SCM back to my

I guess you could say I am looking for an easy way to have the SCM fire the
OnStop event by way of receiving a message from the OnStart event handler. I
would appreciate any help I can get on this. Thanks...
