ServiceInstaller.DelayedAutoStart Property

.NET Framework (current version)

The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the service should be delayed from starting until other automatically started services are running.

Namespace:   System.ServiceProcess
Assembly:  System.ServiceProcess (in System.ServiceProcess.dll)

public bool DelayedAutoStart { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true to delay automatic start of the service; otherwise, false. The default is false.

The DelayedAutoStart property can be applied to any service, but it is ignored unless the service's start mode is Automatic. The setting takes effect the next time the system is restarted. The Service Control Manager does not guarantee a specific start time for the service.

A delayed automatic start service cannot be a member of a load ordering group, but it can depend on another automatic start service. If an application calls a delayed automatic start service before it is loaded, the call fails.

On operating systems that do not support delayed automatic start, setting this property has no effect.
