I want to setup my servers so that when a windows service stops that it runs a batch file which triggers a .ps1 script that sends me a mail. I know that my bat file works but how can I make windows run that bat file when a service stops?

You can configure service "Recovery" option to "Run a program" (or batch file) when service fails.

Click Start -> Run -> Services.msc -> Right click on Service -> Properties -> Recovery -> Under First failure drop down list select "Run a program" -> Click browse button and select batch file that you want to run.

Hope this helps!

If I type in the path of the batch file without browsing it doesn't work when I stop the service.

Did you select "Run a program" from "first failure" drop down list ?

It will only work in case of service failure.
