do you have access to the reskit?

sc.exe should do that.

It does. The syntax is:

SC CONFIG servicename START= AUTO

The other options for startup type are BOOT, SYSTEM, DEMAND and DISABLED.

Note: The space after the = is important

You're welcome. You might want to post another non-question Q to award franka and answer - he mentioned SC.EXE first. I gave you the full syntax.
