VS2010 Application hangs

Hi;

I implemented a simple winforms application which should run a tomcat service but it hangs in the following line:

 sc.WaitForStatus(ServiceControllerStatus.Running);

Open in new window


 ServiceController sc = new ServiceController();
            sc.ServiceName = serviceNameTextBox.Text;

            if (sc.Status == ServiceControllerStatus.Running ||
                sc.Status == ServiceControllerStatus.StartPending)
            {
                Console.WriteLine("Service is already running");
            }
            else
            {
                try
                {
                    Console.Write("Start pending... ");
                    sc.Start();
                    sc.WaitForStatus(ServiceControllerStatus.Running);

                    if (sc.Status == ServiceControllerStatus.Running)
                    {
                        Console.WriteLine("Service started successfully.");
                    }
                    else
                    {
                        Console.WriteLine("Service not started.");
                        Console.WriteLine("  Current State: {0}", sc.Status.ToString("f"));
                    }
                }
                catch (InvalidOperationException)
                {
                    Console.WriteLine("Could not start the service.");
                }
            }

Open in new window


Any idea?

Please post a concise and complete example.

Does the account running your application has the necessary permissions to control a Windows service?

Can you start the service manually?

You do not consider the possibility that the service can be Paused. If it is, you cannot Start it, you have to call Continue.
