comment Windows Service dependencies
In my scenario, Service A is a service written by me, Service B is sql server. Sql server knows nothing about my service (nor should it) and therefore has no sensitivity to shutting down while my service is running. Do you see?

comment Windows Service dependencies
Service B will only be aware of this registry key if it explicitly goes looking for it. Many services don't. It is not there for the benefit of services, it is there for the operating system, so it can work out which services to start first.

comment Windows Service dependencies
Service B might be unaware of Service A, so it cannot be expected to do anything. Windows, on the other hand, should but doesn't.
