Hi all,
How can i add dependencies of a windows service by installshield?
My winservice depend on the three following services, so they must run before the service starts:
 
1. COMSysApp
2. SENS
3. MSDTC
 
Note: I have used Installshield project to install my service and not windows installer class so i could not use the way that mr. Jerry.Wang suggested in his article.

I have solved it myself by adding the dependencies in ServiceComponent Wizard.

You can add dependencies via the registry or via the command line. See e.g. http://www.kiwisyslog.com/help/cattools/index.html?appserv_howtoaddservdepends.htm[^]

Thanks Bernhard Hiller,but i want to add dependency via installshield.It has a Dependency Scanner tool but it could find just COMSysApp but not SEN Service.
even when i add COMSysApp as a dependency and then install my service i can not see this dependency in list of dependencies of my installed service!?

SEN stands for "System Event Notification", maybe that helps to find the service.
I do not know how to add dependencies with InstallShield.
