Extract path from TService

Extract path from TService

Extract path from TService

Hi all.
How do I extract the path from a TService like the Application objects Exename function.???


RE: Extract path from TService


you can find your service path at follow location in registry :
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\<your service.name>

I keep service my installation path under a registry value 'InstallDir' after service installation. Here's an example :


procedure Tsvc_dSMS.ServiceAfterInstall(Sender: TService);

const STR_REGKEY_SVC = '\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\svc_dSMS';

var Reg        : TRegistry;
    ImagePath  : string;

// create needed registry entries after service installation
  // set service description
  if Reg.OpenKey(STR_REGKEY_SVC,False) then
  // set message resource for eventlog
  if Reg.OpenKey(STR_REGKEY_EVENTMSG,True) then
  // set installdir
  if ImagePath <> ' then
   if Reg.OpenKey(STR_REGKEY_FULL,True) then
  if Assigned(Reg) then FreeAndNil(Reg);
