Creating a service

Recommended Posts

So I've been trying to create a service using the Service UDF here :  >UDF

But I keep getting 0 returned, which means failure, and no service appears in the service viewer.

My goal here is to create a service which will launch an autoit exe before a user logs on.

Here's my code: 


$Return =_Service_Create("MY new Service", "NEW SERVICE",  $SERVICE_INTERACTIVE_PROCESS, $SERVICE_AUTO_START, $SERVICE_ERROR_IGNORE,'"C:\Program Files\xxx\xxx.exe"')


Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Ok so I got it to work by changing it from an interactive process to "$SERVICE_WIN32_OWN_PROCESS"; but now I get an error when attempting to start it that the process did not respond in a timely fashion. Error 1053

The second message box in that example posted is always going to return 0 for @error because you're running it after the first MsgBox function and that function resets @error to 0.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
