| Is it possible to define the start order of services? In the services
| manager you can view see the dependencies of a service, however, i
| don't know of a way to actually define dependencies...
| Is there a way to do this?
| I know that I can set all the services to Manual and then write a
| batch script which starts them, however, that requires a user to be
| Logged in. I want the services to start Automatically when the
| machine is rebooted without a user having to login (I also don't want
| to configure Auto Logon because this requires the user password to be
| stored in the registry in clear text).
| Any ideas appreciated.
