On Windows XP Pro  I am running MS SQL Server 2005 Express.  I also have custom C++ application which runs as a service.

I have several computers setup like this. The problem is that some of them, on startup, are trying to load my C++ service before SQL Server services startup.

How can I reorder them?

Set a dependecy on the C++ Service to depend on the MySQL service.
Google on how to set dependecies.

perfect! I set the dependencies on and then temporarily disabled all of the SQL Server services and rebooted. This time my agent service did not load, as the dependent SQL Server services were not loaded.
