How to set .Net service dependencies

Hi

I've created a windows service in .Net and want it to be dependant on some
other service. Can someone please tell how to do it programatically instead
of editing the registry. Just like earlier in VC++ there was a parameter
passed to "CreateService" that would specify the service dependencies. I
didnt see any option in .Net service. Please help if there's any solution
other then writing it in registry.

Regards

Usman

How do you install your service?

If you do this via ServiceInstaller class and InstallUtil, then in the installer class there is property that will help you ( ServicesDependedOn ).

If you install service via ServiceInstall table in the MSI, then you must add values into Dependencies column.
