Hi experts,
Has anyone got a code example of how to use CREATESERVICE. I'm getting stuck with the lpDependencies (what the heck do I put in it). :(
Thanks,
DJ

Most probably You should  place there nil meaning that Your service doesn't require any service started before by the system.

example from MSDN in C but its clear enough I think

BOOL CreateSampleService()
{
    LPCTSTR lpszBinaryPathName =
        "%SystemRoot%\\system\\testserv.exe";
 
    schService = CreateService(
        schSCManager,              // SCManager database
        "Sample_Srv",              // name of service
        lpszDisplayName,           // service name to display
        SERVICE_ALL_ACCESS,        // desired access
        SERVICE_WIN32_OWN_PROCESS, // service type
        SERVICE_DEMAND_START,      // start type
        SERVICE_ERROR_NORMAL,      // error control type
        lpszBinaryPathName,        // service's binary
        NULL,                      // no load ordering group
        NULL,                      // no tag identifier
        NULL,                      // no dependencies
        NULL,                      // LocalSystem account
        NULL);                     // no password
 
    if (schService == NULL)
    {
        printf("CreateService failed.\n");
        return FALSE;
    }
    else
    {
        CloseServiceHandle(schService);
        return TRUE;
    }
}

mokule,
dependencies doesn't like the value NULL or nil or anything else I've tried. It comes up with a message 'incompatible types STRING and PDWORD' ??
