I'm making my first windows service and I'm going back and doing some error coding where I want the service to actually stop itself.

I don't see any real methods for closing the service. I don't see any .close() or unload or anything like.

Could someone help me out here for how to let this guy stop gracefully? thanks.

hi timberbt,
Thanks for returning to this old thread.  I disagree with your assessment.   Did you read the information at Sector's links?  There is excellent information there, including info about the System.ServiceProcess.ServiceController class that answers your question completely.  

Are you certain that you do not want to give Sector any credit?
