Uninstall a service from within an MSI package
I will be upgrading JRE using GPO to deploy. However, due to problems with the JavaQuickStarterService, the installation hangs waiting for user input to stop it. One solution is to uninstall the existing service using the ServiceControlTable in the MSI (or in my custom MST) and this is what I'm trying to achieve.
The information provided on MSDN is sparse and complicated for the non-developer, but I've had a go anyway, but still can't understand what I need to do for the "component_" part of the table entry. This is what I have so far in the ServiceControl table:
[blockquote][font="courier new"]ServiceControl: JavaQuickStarterService
[font="courier new"]Name: JavaQuickStarterService
[font="courier new"]Event: 0x0008
[font="courier new"]Arguments: <null>
[font="courier new"]Wait: <null>
[font="courier new"]Component_: <<< What do I need to do here? >>>
