Windows service automatic

Tom
Hi

I've created a windows service and it is set to run under local system
account. But after its installed and after reboot when I check in the
services its still sitting there and have not automatically started ?
but next to it the start mode does say 'automatic' instead of manual.

so how I get it to start after every reboot ?

Thanks
Tom

Never had this problem with any Windows service I've written.
Check whether you have a bug in the service's startup code that is causing a
crash, perhaps?

I know it's been a while but I had a hard time with this one myself...
You can find some suggestions on the net that it may have something to do
with service dependencies, especially with the Eventlog service. In my case
problem was all about NET performance during system startup. You have to
create (or modify existing) registry DWORD value "ServicesPipeTimeout" in
"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contr ol" - I set it to 60000
(in miliseconds) and my service autostarts fine. Infuriatingly simple:-/

Hi,

I remember that thread, but never understood what happens.
I will start writing a service in the near future and thanks for
that good pointer!!!
