Insert Windows Services

The Windows service type permits individual service operations to be allowed, so that standard users are able to start, stop, and configure services without the need to elevate tools such as the Service Control Manager.

  1. Select the Application Group you want to add the application to.
  2. In the right pane, select Actions > Add Application > Windows Services.
  3. We recommend that you add a Description so that you can identify the Window Service in the Application Group table. The Description is not used as matching criteria for the application definition. Alternatively, you can click the Template button to add a Windows Service from a list of templates.
  4. You need to configure the matching criteria for the Windows Services. You can configure:
    • File or Folder Name matches

    • Product Name matches
    • Publisher matches
    • Product Description matches
    • Product Version matches
    • File Version matches
    • Service Name matches
    • Service Display Name matches

  5. You need to configure the Advanced Options for the application. You can configure:
    • Allow child processes will match this application definition
