_Service_UDF v4 : Build your own service with autoit code

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering why not everbody can access the file (maybe someone can tell me where is the upload button for attachments... )

So here is the updated code:

Func _Service_ServiceMain($iArg, $pArgs)
Local $ret = DllCall($hAdvapi32_DLL, "ptr", "RegisterServiceCtrlHandlerExW", "ptr", DllStructGetPtr($tServiceName), "ptr", DllCallbackGetPtr($tServiceCtrl), "ptr", 0) ;register service

the first line is commented out in the file in post 1. but it should be enabled.

In function _Service_Ctrl i added the following to the Stop Case

_Service_ReportStatus($SERVICE_STOP_PENDING, $NO_ERROR, 3000)
_Service_SetStopEvent()
_exit() ; <- Give the script the chance to exit properly
_Service_Cleanup()

Sadly there is one issue left.

After some time the Service is running, the main loop seems to stop without reason.

In the Eventlog "System" the following error is raised: Source: Service Control Manager; Event ID 7011

"A timeout (30000 milliseconds) was reached while waiting for a transaction response from the A3Test_Service service."

that's really weird and i must apologize. It seems that my last update wasn't good and I erased all correction added.

I did some SH** with my dropbox so i've to retry all the last correction.

@bhamp0

I remember something like this, and i remember that correst registerservice to registerservceex and i can't see those correction ....

i Wonder what i've done ....

i'm working by night at my job so i've some time and i'll try to correct it asap

thx for your investigation btw :)

what i can see here is that sometimes, the _service_ctrl is not called so there is a problem with a declaration of it.

@bitboy, i found an older version that lead to what you posted, and that seems better, but i've the same problem as you.

My fear is that it could be Inside autoit. I'll test more.

"The ServiceMain function should immediately call the RegisterServiceCtrlHandlerEx function to specify a HandlerEx function to handle control requests. Next, it should call the SetServiceStatus function to send status information to the service control manager. After these calls, the function should complete the initialization of the service. Do not attempt to start another service in the ServiceMain function"

so i'm good here.

mmm ok so when the process fails to stop, all the whole service doesn't work too.

I've a log that is created at each start and when the service stops it fails too.

Here are my guess : the service is not well declared to scm, or it fails internally but the program

continues to run.

so autoit problem ( i've seen it since first version of my udf ) or the udf ?

i'm pretty sure that a struct or something is not well done.

wow there is some hard issue.
I'm pretty this is callback related but ...
sometimes when i try to stop the program, the log shows

20131012 075519 [1956] >> ** SCM command received => 1
20131012 075519 [1956] >> program started

so it shows the beginning ? how that could happen ?
i think f wring memory adress here but i don't know how to detect it.

edit :

20131012 080322 [4608] >> _Service_Init(Autoit_Service)
20131012 080322 [4608] >> Report Status received with = 2
20131012 080322 [4608] >> Report Status received with = 4
20131012 080322 [4608] >> main start
20131012 080322 [4608] >> main count0
20131012 080323 [4608] >> main count1
20131012 080324 [4608] >> main count2
20131012 080325 [4608] >> main count3
20131012 080326 [4608] >> main count4
20131012 080327 [4608] >> main count5
20131012 080328 [4608] >> main count6
20131012 080329 [4608] >> ** SCM command received => 1
20131012 080329 [4608] >> Received stop command for service
20131012 080329 [4608] >> Report Status received with = 3
20131012 080329 [4608] >> program started



it's always so there is something wrong in Relationship between scm and service.
the whole exe is loaded each time i call ctrl from scm ? dunno.
the "program started" should happen each time ? dunno
i'll rework the service main.

so now i manage to always execute the loop but the stop command fails too with random errors.

the scm doesn't call well the _service_ctrl

edit :

seems to work much better.

all that i can say is that it's better to do nothing when service exiting, even writing a log.

Hi arcker

thx for you work.

i'm curently investigating in the Event Error. This happened on an X64 System with a 64Bit compiled script. yesterday i tested at home with 32Bit compiled script on a 32it system. The service was running stable over night. I can't say if thats realy the reason. For the moment i'll just let it run and see if it stops working again.

Update: Seems that i cannot reproduce the error with x86 compiled script. The service is running "rock solid" for hours now without any issue. I'll cross check on monday with the X64 system.

here what i found ( i'll post the new code tomorrow ) :

=> comment out the two lines with dllcallbackfree ( I Wwnder why i put it here )

=> put the registerctrlhandler Inside main function

at exit ( stop )

at the end of main function :

=> dllcallbackfree

=> setreportstatus service stopped with no wait ( set 3000 to 0 )

=> exit

Hi guys

can you try this ?

compile & run debug_server and see if hello happens when start service

then you can run stop & start with benchmark.cmd

i noticed that my crashed was due that my log is synchronised with dropbox.

i will test those for win vista + now.

With my test now i have always the main function that is executed.

Service crash when stopped  1/30 test

thx

Hi,

i tested the new services.au3 on the x64 system. Both Versions of the compiled script (x86 and x64) stops working on this machine with EventID 7011.

I'm wondering why the service on my private machine works.

@bitboy

I tuned a little the services.au3.

On xp it's ok if we don't stop & restart the service too quickly ( i set a pause of 3 sec between ). No more crash.

On win7 it's not the same. The script doesn't handle well the stop and often hang.

I'm searching, hope to post a new version within an hour.

Hello arcker,

this event occurs randomly, with NO stop request send by me or the SCM. Just seems like the main loop hangs or stops somewhere.

At my Win7 box at home i don't have that issue. So i don't think this issue is related to the services.au3

the services are running fine on the two system i have.

Bitboy, do you use last beta version ( 3.3.9.21 )? It seems to fix some memory error.

try with attached files please.

btw it doesn't fix the random errors i have too

they are wayyy rare too. so it's better, not perfect, but better.

Hi,

i'll test them tomorrow. maybe you're right and the problem is related to the autoit version. As far as i remember i use 3.3.8.0 at home and 3.3.8.1 at work.

I have a special version of Services.au3 that is working on Win Server 2008 R2, so I won't change anything for the moment (I should probably clean things up a bit).

For those who are looking for a service template (as I got some issue while using example presented on this topic), here is mine:

#NoTrayIcon


#include <Winapi.au3>
#include <Process.au3>
#include "Services.au3"



Global $sServiceName = "MyServiceName"

Global $MainLog = @ScriptDir & "\" & $sServiceName & ".log"
FileDelete($MainLog)

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
; GLOBAL PARAMETERS ;
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
Global $parameter1 = "Value1"
Global $parameter2 = "Value2"
Global $parameter3 = "Value3"





Func _Main($iArg, $sArgs)
   
   
   _Service_ReportStatus($SERVICE_START_PENDING, $NO_ERROR, 10)
   
   
   ; INIT SERVICE
   logprint("pre-init")   
   ;;;;; Init all things

   logprint("post-init")

   logprint("pre-start")
   ;;;;; Do something: start a process, ...
   logprint("post-start")
   
   
   _Service_ReportStatus($SERVICE_RUNNING, $NO_ERROR, 30)
   
   
   ; SERVICE UP - LOOPING
   While $bServiceRunning
      Sleep(30 * 1000)      ; Wait 30 seconds

      ;;;;; If necessary, do something, like checking the service should still be up

      _Service_ReportStatus($SERVICE_RUNNING, $NO_ERROR, 30)

   WEnd
   
   
   _Service_ReportStatus($SERVICE_STOP_PENDING, $NO_ERROR, 10)
   
   
   ; STOP SERVICE
   logprint("pre-stop")
   ;;;;; Clean things up
   logprint("post-stop")
   
   
   _Service_ReportStatus($SERVICE_STOPPED, $NO_ERROR, 0)
   
   
   Exit(0)
   
   
EndFunc   ;==>main



 
logprint("service initialization: " & $sServiceName)
_Service_Init($sServiceName)
Exit(0)





Func _WriteError($errorMessage)
   ConsoleWriteError(@YEAR & "-" & @MON & "-" & @MDAY & " " & @HOUR & ":" & @MIN & ":" & @SEC & " [" & @AutoItPID & "] >> " & $errorMessage & @CRLF)
   logprint($errorMessage)
EndFunc

Func logprint($textMessage)
   FileWriteLine($MainLog, @YEAR & "-" & @MON & "-" & @MDAY & " " & @HOUR & ":" & @MIN & ":" & @SEC & " [" & @AutoItPID & "] >> " & $textMessage & @CRLF)
EndFunc   ;==>logprint

ok no more crash on win7 but on winXP sometimes the error, but only at stop.

i've redone the services.au3 to take care of new nested struct features. Doesn't change the problem on winxp

but it's easier to understand in the code :)

edit : I can confirm that on win7, after +500 stop & start, no more crash

not the same issue on WinXP but I don't think it's autoit related now, and it only happens at stop

please post your results too :)

here the updated services.au3

      HI people,
                        I got a questions, I maintain code in autoIT and every time I compile a new version or modification, Scite generate 2 folders. One folder is finish by released and the other is tentative. I try to make some google search, but never find answer would satisfied myself. The dev who was maintain it before were using AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI, and I don't know if it's related. I look both folder, but they seem pretty identical, but I would like to know what it's the difference between those to folder. Anyone have a clue?
    • By Rhidlor
      I don't have any experience compiling AutoIt scripts or know of any best practices regarding said scripts so I was wondering, what are some of the options for passing data to complied scripts? Here's an example of what I mean by "option": Writing data to a text file, then running a script which reads the data from that text file.
      Thanks!
      I apologize if this topic is a little lackluster

      Hey All,
      Yes, this is an odd request. 
      But is there a way to bulk up the size of the compiled program? 
      I know many want to reduce it's size, but I want to increase it.
      What methods do you suggest?
    • By dimm
      Is it possible to compile script without any icon resources included?
      When I make exe it uses default system icon of current OS even if I compile as console application.
      On other versions of Windows it looks a little strange

       
      Update:
      It seems that the only way is remove icons from exe after compilation using resource editors like ResHacker.

       
      another bad solution:
      Using corrupted 35 bytes icon file. Windows can't load it and shows default system icon.
      #pragma compile(Icon, broken.ico) broken.ico
