Added: Strawberry v5.28.1

Added: Win32::Daemon v20131206

I have an implementation of Win32::Daemon that is working on some systems and not on others. The only common thread I've found so far is that the bulk of systems it is not working on are Windows Server 2012 systems.

The system I am currently looking at though is Windows Server 2016 Standard 1607 14393.2969 64-bit with Strawberry Perl

The state starts at SERVICE_STOPPED, switches to SERVICE_NOT_READY, and then stays there. The state never switches to SERVICE_RUNNING

Nothing in the Callback_start is printed.

To run:

cd \Users\john\test perl --install net start TestService

I've stripped down the program to one file as shown below to help troubleshoot.

#!/usr/bin/env perl use strict; use warnings; use File::Basename; use Cwd qw(abs_path getcwd); use Win32; use Win32::Daemon; use Cwd qw(abs_path getcwd); use File::Spec::Functions; # Get command line argument - if none passed, use empty string my $opt = $ARGV[0] || ""; my $path = $ARGV[1]; open(my $fh, ">>", "C:\\Users\\john\\test\\test.log"); select($fh); $|=1; print $fh "Running Test Service.\n"; print $fh "opt: $opt\n"; print $fh "path: $path\n"; # Check command line argument if ($opt =~ /^(-i|--install)$/i) { install_service(); } elsif ($opt =~ /^(-r|--remove)$/i) { remove_service(); } else { if (!$path) { print $fh "This program is intended to be run as a service.\n" +; exit 1; } chdir $path; Win32::Daemon::RegisterCallbacks( { start => \&Callback_Start, running => \&Callback_Running, stop => \&Callback_Stop, pause => \&Callback_Pause, continue => \&Callback_Continue, } ); print $fh "Debug 1\n"; my %Context = ( last_state => SERVICE_STOPPED, start_time => time(), ); print $fh "Debug 2\n"; Win32::Daemon::AcceptedControls(SERVICE_ACCEPT_STOP | SERVICE_ACCEPT_PAUSE_CONTINUE | SERVICE_ACCEPT_SHUTDOWN | SERVICE_ACCEPT_PARAMCHANGE | SERVICE_ACCEPT_NETBINDCHANGE); print $fh "Debug 3\n"; Win32::Daemon::StartService( \%Context, 1 * 1000); print $fh "Debug 4\n"; close STDERR; close STDOUT; } sub Callback_Running { my($Event, $Context) = @_; print $fh "SERVICE_RUNNING: " .

Win32::Daemon::StopService(); } sub install_service { my ($path, $parameters); my $dir = getcwd; # Get the program's full filename, break it down into constituent +parts my $fn = Win32::GetFullPathName($0); my ($cwd,$bn,$ext) = ( $fn =~ /^(.*\\)(.*)\.(.*)$/ ) [0..2] ; # Determine service's path to executable based on file extension if ($ext eq "pl") { # Source perl script - invoke perl interpreter $path = "\"$^X\""; # Parameters include extra @INC directories and perl script # @INC directories must not end in \ otherwise perl hangs my $inc = ($cwd =~ /^(.*?)[\\]?$/) [0]; $parameters = "-I " . "\"$inc\"" . " \"$fn\" \"myflag\" \"$dir +\""; } else { # Invalid file type? die "Can not install service for $fn, file extension $ext not supported."; } my $sServiceName = "TestService"; # Populate the service configuration hash # The hash is required by Win32::Daemon::CreateService my %srv_config = ( name => $sServiceName, display => "Test Service ($sServiceName)", path => $path, description => "For debugging.", parameters => $parameters, service_type => SERVICE_WIN32_OWN_PROCESS, start_type => SERVICE_AUTO_START, ); # Install the service if (Win32::Daemon::CreateService(\%srv_config)) { print $fh "Test Service has been installed.\n"; } else { print $fh "Failed to install Test Service.\n"; } print $fh "Setting agent service to delayed start.\n"; print $fh "sc config $sServiceName start= delayed-auto\n"; print $fh `sc config $sServiceName start= delayed-auto` . "\n"; } sub remove_service { print $fh "Test Service is being removed.\n"; my $sServiceName = "TestService"; my $hostname = Win32::NodeName(); if (Win32::Daemon::DeleteService($sServiceName)) { print $fh "Test Service uninstalled successfully.\n"; } else { print $fh "Failed to uninstall Test Service.\n"; } }
