How to create or delete a DevTest Windows Service.



The shared installation type is designed for environments that have the following characteristics:

Multiple users share an installation of DevTest from multiple computers. Each user has separate data.

In a shared installation, all data and temporary files are stored in user-specified directories.

Each user has their own data, but they share a common DevTest installation.

If you want to install Component Services and you are an Administrator, use the local install.

If you do want to install Component Services at a later time, below shows how to create and delete a Windows Service.



All supported DevTest Windows platforms.



This example is for DevTest 9.1.0, but this would apply to any DevTest version being installed.

From a Command Prompt, run as Administrator.

To create a Service:

sc create "DevTest 9.1.0 Enterprise Dashboard Service" binPath= C:\DevTest9.1.0\bin\EnterpriseDashboardService.exe

sc create "DevTest 9.1.0 Broker Service" binPath= C:\DevTest9.1.0\bin\BrokerService.exe

sc create "DevTest 9.1.0 Portal Service" binPath= C:\DevTest9.1.0\bin\PortalService.exe

sc create "DevTest 9.1.0 Registry Service" binPath= C:\DevTest9.1.0\bin\RegistryService.exe

sc create "DevTest 9.1.0 Coordinator Service" binPath= C:\DevTest9.1.0\bin\CoordinatorService.exe

sc create "DevTest 9.1.0 Simulator Service" binPath= C:\DevTest9.1.0\bin\SimulatorService.exe

sc create "DevTest 9.1.0 VSE" binPath= C:\DevTest9.1.0\bin\VirtualServiceEnvironmentService.exe

Note: there is a space after the binPath=
