Window Service Issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi ,

    I am developing a Window service and below is its Onstart method

     protected override void OnStart(string[] args)
       Thread.Sleep(new TimeSpan(0, 10, 0));

    but when i start the service it gives me following error\

    Window could not start the MaxTimeService on the local computer.
    Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion

    what could be the reason for this...

    Thanks in advance

  • Hi,


    onstart has to do only starting the work.

    it has to exit gracefully.

    other wise the service manager kills the service,  because it identifies that main thread is not free.
