Stopping processes when stopping Windows service.

I am creating a Windows service that will check a request queue
(database) for pending requests. It will then process each individual
request until completed, wait a set time interval and then move on to
the next one in the list. The processing routine could take 1-2
minutes to finish processing one request.

My question is this: If the service is stopped while the process
routine is running, how can I make sure the processing of that one
request finished before shutdown actually occurs? Stopping the
processing of a request in the middle will cause the end result to be
invalid.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,
Glen

I have a Windows Service (VB.NET) that runs 24/7. It queries a Web service 5 to 10 times per hour. About 2 or 3 times a month, it fails. The log indicates that it sends the request to the Web service but there is no return from the service. Stopping and restarting the Windows service cures the problem. Our desire is to cure the problem with appropriate error handling but failing that, is there an easy way to automatically stop and...

I've tried executing processes under Visual Basic.NET-based Windows services in the past but to no avail. Is it possible to execute a process via System.Diagnostics in a Windows Service? The user does not have to be able to interact with the process, but let's say the (hidden) process does a file conversion. I'd like to be able to execute such a process in a Windows Servce. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in...

I have a service process that contains two services but only one of them ever works properly. The background is I have two classes which are Individual() and Mass() in the main service class and they both inherit ServiceBase. The main Method is as follows: static void Main() { System.ServiceProcess.ServiceBase ServicesToRun; ServicesToRun = new System.ServiceProcess.ServiceBase

The problematic code runs perfectly fine and unmodified when the application is executed as a standalone .exe. However when the same code is executed inside Windows Service - it locks up and waits indefinetely attempting to instantiate COM object with Activator.CreateInstance. The service impersonates local admin creadentials. I am not getting any exceptions, neither raised, nor reported in systems logs.

Hello, I have a problem with our OnlineBackupService.exe. This is a Windows Service which is built in .Net 1.1 and basically grabs files from the file system and will try to upload them using WebServices. The service is installed by default using LocalSystem account. The exact problem is that sometimes this service is not allowed to resolve the target webservice. This results in the following exception:

I built a Windows service that sweeps a set of folders every 60 seconds and puts the files into a SQL Server database. I am creating a second service that will delete this set of folders and recreate them each night based on a list of active customers. I need to be able to stop the first service before starting the second service and then when the second service completes restart the first service. I haven't the slightest idea how to proceed.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
