service on Local Computer started then stopped. Somer services ...
Posted on 2004-09-12
I'm setting up user-defined services and get the following error on Windows 2003 Server.
The <service name> service on Local Computer started then stopped. Somer services stop automatically if they have no work to do, for example, the Performance Logs and Alerts service.
I'm simple settin up an application to run as a service. It's always worked on Windows 2000 using Windows 2000 Resource Kit (files instsrv.exe and srvany) and w/ Windows XP, also using the Windows 2000 Resource Kit.
On Windows 2003 Server, using its own resource kit, it fails w/ the above error.
However, If I use the instsrv.exe and srvany.exe files from the Windows 2000 Resource Kit on the Windows 2003 Server box the services run ok. Is there a known issue w/ the Resource Kit for Windows 2003?
I know this is a known error, but from the research I've done, there are no issues when setting up a simple application to run as a service.
Thanks in advanced.
