Start Windows Service Immediately After Installation

Recommended Posts


I have successfully used Jet to build and deploy as Windows service.  One minor issue I have is that the service does not automatically after installation.  Instead, you have to go to the Services applet to start it up.  I believe I can get around this by one of the following two methods:

1) Force the user to restart Windows after installation

2) Create an After-Runnable that will execute the net start MyService command

However, I just wanted to check to see if anyone knew of a better way before I wrote any code or force a reboot (which would be otherwise unnecessary).
