    Hi all,

    It's a really cool stuff and I like this feature very much. I have already got a copy of Windows 7 image and an SDK of Windows 7. I found the definition, trigger-start, has already in the head file, WinSvr.h, but I still have not idea about how to implement the feature by ChangeServiceConfig2 API. Does anyone has any ideas or sample codes ? Could you share with me ? My email is Thank you for any comment followed !!

    Thank you for your query. The MSDN SDK documentation is currently being updated and should be available after Windows 7 Beta release. Tentatively, that should happen in the later part of January 2009.
