guessing you must restart your machine before reinstalling

I would also like to know the answer to this problem. As kretzschmar said you have to reboot when this happens (service marked for deletion), but the real question is: how can we make sure the service is uninstalled, instead of just marked for deletion?

In my experience service manager must not be opened when uninstalling, as it may lock the service somehow. Maybe this is a Delphi issue, since I've only seen it happen with Delphi services, but I dont know. Anyway, I dont recall it happening when service manager is *not* open, so closing it before /uninstall could solve it. But thats just my experiences, I dont have any facts.

usual the service-app cannot removed by the os,
because there is already an instance in memory.

therefore there is done an entry into the registry, i guess, not shure yet,
which remembers the os that this files are to be removed
on next startup, before any other files are executed
