Change A Service Startup

4 posts in this topic

Hi Guys

Is there any way of changing a service startup under NT / XP.

Net Start and stop are useful but they don't change the startup from being manual to automatic

I am writing a script via autoit to change this but I do not want to use send commands. Is there anyway of changing via commandline or does anyone know of a util that can do this.

Hi vickerps,

you can change the service startup with the following registry settings:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\your_service]

"Start"=dword:00000002 ---> automatic

"Start"=dword:00000003 ---> manual

"Start"=dword:00000004 ---> deactivated

Also, on Windows XP (Maybe others), there is sc.exe which can change that.
