Go to the computer management console (compmgmt.msc). Got the service
section and get properties on the service. One of the tabs lets you
decide how to handle the service crash (eg restart, leave it dead,
notify, etc)

Hi all,

I have created windows service using Dot Net 1.1. The service is set to
Automatic Start mode.The service is deployed on Windows 2003 Server.
The issue is whenever the server gets restarted (manually or
automatically) the services are not getting started even though they
are in automatic mode. Does any body has idea about this..

Thanks in advance

4. Script to automatically restart service after system start


after booting my w2k3 server I have to restart a service (OpenVPN) in 
order to have it working correctly. I don't know if this is an issue 
with the OpenVPN config but for now I would like to have a script that 
automatically restarts the OpenVPN service ~5 minutes after the system 

I wrote a little batch file (c:\temp\openvpnrestart.bat) with sleep and 
net stop/start commands and created a new scheduled task that should 
start while starting the system (with user "Administrator"). But it 
seems that the script does not work properly while beeing started by a 
scheduled task. Starting it manually works perfectly.

How am I able to automatically restart a service ~5 minutes after system 
and service startup?

Kind regards,

8. Restart Button on Taskbar does not automatically restart after shut down

The Restart Button which appears when you click on Start in 
the Taskbar merely shuts down the laptop, and I have to 
manually start up again to load windows. This has been 
happening ever since I clean-reinstalled Windows XP Pro 
after doing a full format of the C drive. Even during the 
installation, all intermediate shutdown and start operations 
showed the same behaviour, and every time I had to press the 
start button after a shut down, Otherwise the laptop is 
performing fine. Can someone please advise how to rectify 
the fault? Many thanks in advance.
