comment Automatically restart Windows service if it is not running
It is an application we wrote ourselves. Its not one of the services that come with windows. The problem is that when the program detects a failure it does shutdown but it doesnt shutdown with a failure. Im guessing it is supposed to return an error flag when it shuts down but it probably doesnt.
