This update provides a fix for quicker shutdown of Vista when a managed service is not managing its own state during shutdown

  • Published:
  • Version: 1.0
  • Category: Update
  • Language: English

This update to the .Net framework 2.0 targets the Microsoft Vista™ Operating System. This is an enhancement to provide additional support for managed services that do not manage their own service state during shutdown

  • The Vista™ Operating system can experience delays during shutdown if running a managed service that was designed with a ServiceBase.OnShutdown method that does not explicitly call the ServiceBase Stop() method on system shutdown. This update facilitates quicker system shutdown by explicitly setting the service state to stopped after calling their OnShutdown, if the service has not already called the Stop() method.
