    error stop a Windows service

    Hello everyone,


    Here is my OnStop method of Windows service application. When click stop, the error message is, "Error: 1067 The process terminated unexpectedly".

    I have tested if remove the Join method, the service can stop gracefully. Does it mean Join method is not allowed to be called in OnStop method of a Windows service? Any ideas?

    Code:
    protected override void OnStop()
    {
        MyWorkerThread.Join();
        this.ExitCode = 0;
    }

    thanks in advance,
    George

    How about putting your code in a try-catch-block ? Then you can see what goes wrong.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
