Starting Window Services in a certain order

Post by VEogU2NobG » Fri, 01 Sep 2006 05:01:03


I have a customized application that I am working with, I need to make the
services that correspond with the application start in a certain order. I
also need to make some Windows services start after the Customized
application services start. I need to know how to do this whether it is done
in the registry which I am assuming but where?

Isn't there a Dependencies setting you can access through the
Services--Properties--Dependencies part of Admin Tools?

John you are correct you can look to see what are the dependencies of that
certain service. But I need to make the dependencies manually.

force service boot in a certain order. Any Suggestions?

Services can be loaded simultaneously, but dependent on their dependencies.

Step 5 - Services Load. This step begins with the starting of the Session
Manager (Smss.exe). It will run the programs listed in its BootExecute
Registry entry, as well as starting the required subsystems. The Win32
subsystem will then start Winlogon.exe, which starts the Local Security
Administration (Lsass.exe), and the Ctrl + Alt + Delete window appears. The
Service Controller (Screg.exe) will check the Registry for services with a
start value of 0x2, and will load them. Services can be loaded
simultaneously, but dependent on their dependencies. Services with start
values of 0x3 are started manually, and services with start values of 0x4
are disabled.
