Service not launching on shutdown and start

Thu Aug 27, 2020 5:50 pm

I built a java app and wrapped it as a service using an advanced installer. After installation, the service is launching and the app is working as expected. And it is working as expected if I restart the machine. However, if I shut down the machine and start it again, or log off the user and login back again, the service is showing as started, but I see that even the first line of the main method in the app is also not executed. Any ideas on what could be causing these differences?

To be fully honest with you, this is quite a strange behavior and I can not say why this happens.

In order for me to further investigate this, could you please forward me the following:

- a copy of your .AIP file

- a download link for your setup

- a test case (i.e. how can I know that the application that is launched by your service is working as expected and how can I know it is not)

by e-mail at support at advancedinstaller dot com?
