Public Enumeration ServiceStartMode

Member nameDescription
Automatic

Indicates that the service is to be started (or was started) by the operating system, at system start-up. If an automatically started service depends on a manually started service, the manually started service is also started automatically at system startup.

Boot

Indicates that the service is a device driver started by the system loader. This value is valid only for device drivers.

Disabled

Indicates that the service is disabled, so that it cannot be started by a user or application.

Manual

Indicates that the service is started only manually, by a user (using the Service Control Manager) or by an application.

System

Indicates that the service is a device driver started by the IOInitSystem function. This value is valid only for device drivers.

The ServiceStartMode is used by the service installer to indicate whether the new service should be disabled at system startup, whether the system should start the service automatically at system startup, or whether the service should be started manually by a user or application. It is also used by the ServiceController.StartType property to indicate how a particular service starts.
