Win2000 DCOM and Service Control Manager on PC Startup
2006-01-10 12:04:56 AM
Hi all, hope you all had a great holiday and a peaceful New Year.
And I REALLY hope the rest of the year is productive.
Anyhow, in Win XP there is a service called "DcomLaunch" that more or
less 'Provides Launch functionality for DCOM services'
But in Win2000 there is no such service. How, can I tell that DCOM is up
and running when launching an application as a service. That is my
Service A is launching Service B, but Service A must know that DCOM is
up since Service B is using DCOM.
In this case I add a Dependency to Service A (or B) to launch AFTER the
'DcomLaunch' service is running, but in 2000 I dont know where to start.
Thanks for any help.
