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' ??

help !

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
