I have installed a Windows service using the
sc create method, then I later used the
sc delete method to get rid of it, it then marked the service for deletion.
I made changes to the service and recompiled it, then I tried to recreate it using
sc create but it said:
The service has been marked for deletion So I thought I'd give it some time.
Now 1 day later and it's still marked for deletion. Can't do anything with the service.
I then tried the same thing using
installutil with a different service and the first couple of times it added and removed it successfully, then it eventually also got stuck. Now I've got 2 services marked for deletion, installed using different methods and they were also marked for deletion using different methods.
sc can't immediately remove my services, what other options do I have? (Excluding 3rd party components) Or is there a way I could forcibly remove these services?
