The Service Menu contains the following options:


Option

Purpose

New

Creates a new FireDaemon Pro service.

Edit

Edits an existing FireDaemon Pro or built-in service.

Uninstall

Uninstalls an existing service.

Clone

Clones (duplicates) the settings of the currently selected FireDaemon Pro service and opens the New Service dialog. See Note below.

Clone Hot

Clones (duplicates) and installs the settings of the currently selected FireDaemon Pro service renaming accordingly. The service will be automatically started if the original service's Start-Up Mode is set to Automatic or Automatic (Delayed Start). Note: that if a service is configured to run with a user account then when the service is Cloned or Hot Cloned then the service will be left in a stopped state and will not run until the user account password has been entered in the Settings tab. This is a limitation as a result of the Service Control Manager retaining a one way encrypted password (ie. the password can be set but can never be read).

Start

Starts a stopped service.

Stop

Stops a running service.

Restart

Restarts a running service.

Start (in session)

[Vista, 2008 or later only] Starts a stopped service in the currently logged on session to temporarily defeat session 0 isolation. Services running in session will be killed and restarted on session 0 upon log off. Start (in session) only works for accounts running as LocalSystem.

Restart (in session)

[Vista, 2008 or later only] Restarts a running service in the currently logged on session to temporarily defeat session 0 isolation. Services running in session will be killed and restarted on session 0 upon log off. Restart (in session) only works for accounts running as LocalSystem.

Bring To Front

Brings the window of the application to the foreground on the desktop. On Vista, 2008 or later this will only work when the FireDaemon Pro GUI is run on Session 0 along side the applications being run by FireDaemon Pro or if the applications are already running in the current logon session by virtue of being started or restarted "in session".

Show Log

Will open the debug log in the default text editor. Only applicable if debug logging is enabled.

Start All

Starts all installed FireDaemon Pro services.

Stop All

Stops all installed FireDaemon Pro services.

Restart All

Stops then starts all installed FireDaemon Pro services.

Import

Import a FireDaemon Pro XML Service Definition.

Export

Export All

Export all FireDaemon Pro Services to XML.

Kill All

Brutally terminate all FireDaemon Pro Services and their subprocesses with extreme prejudice in the least amount of time.

Uninstall All

Uninstalls all stopped FireDaemon Pro services.

Switch to Session0

[Vista, 2008 or later only] Starts the UI0Detect services and switches to session 0 to view interactive services.


NB. Removing a non-FireDaemon Pro service is seriously not recommended. The functioning of your machine may be seriously compromised as a result. You have been warned!
