View Full Version : StopServices

10-29-2003, 09:00 AM
I'd like to stop a service when a component is updated.

So, I have made the necessary changes to the Control NT Services tree item for the component in question setting "Uninstall Stop" = "yes" and all the others set to "no".

I tested it by performing a minor upgrade where the component in question was updated. However, the service that I requested to be stopped was not stopped (I've checked in the event viewer).

Can anyone help me here please?

If the StopServices sequence item is executed every time (patch, minor upgrade, major upgrade) then why wasn't my service stopped?

Thanks in advance
