    Hi all

    I've got a w2k3 server with custom service dependencies. They were added
    with the resource kit tool sc.exe (sc config "servicename" depend=

    the dependencies are now not needed anymore, and i want to remove them. But
    i can't find a command within sc.exe to remove service dependencies, but only
    to create them.

    is there a other way to remove dependencies?
    thanks for your help!

  2. Yes, remove them from the DependOnService Value Name, a REG_MULTI_SZ data type
    at HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\<ServiceKey>
