Assembly: System.ServiceProcess (in system.serviceprocess.dll)
The TimeoutException class can specify a message to describe the source of the exception. When a method throws this exception, the message is usually "The timeout provided has expired and the operation has not been completed."
This class is used, for example, by the ServiceController class's WaitForStatus member. The operation that can throw the exception is a change of the service's Status property (for example, from Paused to ContinuePending).
