Sorry, I didn't get that from your previous posts. Unfortunately setting a flag to automatically set the start type at install time is not possible.
You could try to use "sc.exe
" utility in a custom action to change the start type after InstallServices standard action
. By doing this you could reference a merge module specific property (e.g. XMSTUDIO.4E72A4E1538744C6A2EC5B2DE0D2CEDE).
If this doesn't work or suit your scenario for some reason, then the only solution is to install and configure the service from a custom action entirely (without using the Services page in the merge module).
All the best,
