Michael,

To uninstall the service:

net stop slsService
slsService -u

-u is for "uninstall".

This is done for you by the DBT removal process.  (But I understand why you
weren't using the software removal process.)  Unfortunately, the answer to
your more detailed question is "I don't know".  I will go out on a limb and
guess that removing any beta will stop and remove slsService included with
any beta.  In other words, you've probably just pointed out a flaw in my
earlier advice.

For what it's worth, there's no need to switch slsService off in on
directory and on in the other.  They are the same program and operate on the
same files regardless.

- Peter

Subject: [duxhelp] Removing the slsService

Hi,

During the upgrade to beta 4, I followed the recommendation to not remove
the previous beta. As I am running this in a client-server setup, I had
installed the slsService. Now that I am using beta 4, I want to move the
pointer to the service to the new beta (trying a configuration change). As
simply running "slsService -i" in the new directory does not perform the
operation I want, my next idea was to run "slsService -r" to remove the
service (-i for install, so -r for remove, right?) so that I can then
install the service in the new directory. I tried this from both the old and
new directories without success. This brings up a couple of questions:
1. Is it possible to remove the service without directly editing the
registry? If so, how?
2. Will the installer remove the service automatically? If yes, will it
remove all services called "slsService" or will it only remove the service
if it points to the installation directory?  For example, if I am successful
at pointing this to the new directory, will the installer remove this
service when I remove the old beta?
