... until the collector arrives ...

This "blog" is really just a scratchpad of mine. There is not much of general interest here. Most of the content is scribbled down "live" as I discover things I want to remember. I rarely go back to correct mistakes in older entries. You have been warned :)


Windows Service Dependencies

You can add a dependency between one Windows service and another by creating a REG_MULTI_SZ key with the name:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\dependent service name\DependOnService

The value is a newline-delimited list of prerequisite service names (identified by their registry key name).
