Duplicate windows services entries after rename
Jul 21st, 2011 at 4:45pm
 
In the new version of WatchDirectory we are finding that if a task which is running as a windows service is renamed the old version and the new version both appear in the windows services list and there is no way for us to delete the old version from the list without doing a registry update and a server reboot.

Is this a bug in the new version as we have not seen this before we upgraded?

We can reproduce this issue, thanks for reporting.
As a workaround please create a new dummy task with the same name as your renamed task had before. Switch it to 'run as service', click OK, switch it back to 'normal', click OK, delete this dummy task. With that your old service will be removed.

We will fix it in one of the next releases.
