how to enable and start a disabled service

4 posts in this topic

hello the world.

just this silly question asked in the title.

i'm checking the status of a service with wmi and need to start it if disabled.

if change it's state in the registry from 4 to 2 HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\wuauserv

and need to manualy start it. i receive an error message when i try to do a "net start" command.

if i do it via the managemnt console all is fine.

is there another key to change to be able to do a "net start" or another prg to run to change the status of the service from "disable" to "auto" or "manual".

thx for your answers

You might want to look at the code in my Admin Tool (see signature), it has those option in it.

ok, i've just looked at your code (very impressive), i think i'll lose a lot of time to understand the function.

so if someone have something already done and small.

i'll be pleased.
