I have written a very simply WCF service which I am hosting using
TopShelf. When I install the service on a Windows 2008 Server R2 box
and set the startup type of the service to "Automatic" the service
fails to start when the machine starts. However if I switch the start
up mode to "Automatic(Delayed Start)" then the service happily starts
up when the machine boots up.
On a Windows 2003 box the
service runs under the "Automatic" startup type as there is no
Automatic(Delayed Start) mode but there the service correctly starts
up on its own when the box starts up.
The FID under which
the service is configured to run has "Logon as service" right on all

After making minor changes to a Windows Service and deploying those
changes to Production Staging (Windows Server 2008), the Windows
Service fails to start.
The event log states only
Windows detected your registry file is still in use by other applications or services. The file will be unloaded now. The
applications or services that hold your registry file may not
function properly afterwards.
One of the changes
was to an NLog configuration file entry that only applies with
Production build settings thanks to the magic of Slow Cheetah.
Is there a way to adjust the delay time for a Win 7 Service set to
start as "Automatic (Delayed Start)" ? I've got one
service set to the default Automatic that causes many other startup
items to take a long time to run on bootup. If I change the
service to "Automatic (Delayed Start)" that fixes this
annoyance issue. Other startup programs and services start
quickly ... But with "Automatic (Delayed Start)" the
delay is a minute or more ... whatever MS delayed start means I
would like the delay to be 10-15 seconds.
