API used for start and stop services in windows 2008 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Thank you for having a look at this post.

    This is a query regarding services.msc. In windows 2003 and windows 2008, services.msc was using "ServiceStart" and "ControlService" to start and stop a windows service respectively. Whereas this is not the case in windows 2008 r2.
    This was observed by debugging services.msc in windbg by adding breakpoints to above functions. Can you please let me know what is the design change done in services.msc in windows 2008 r2 and what API it uses to start and stop services.
