View Full Version : Creating a Windows Service with dependencies

I have created a Windows Sesrvice through a reg file. This is the
content of the reg file:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\User Admin
"Description"="Starts the User Process."

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\User Admin Agent

The service is created perfectly. What I want to do is the following.
When I stop the service I would like to kill/shutdown a process that
is initiated when the service is started. I have asked around how to
do it. I found out that it is possible but I have to add dependencies
when creating the Windows Service.
How can I create a dependency at the creation of the Windows Service?
And how can I make sure that this dependency is to shut down a
process(in this case java.exe)?

Any help will be appreciated.
