When the CatTools Service is installed into the system/server, it is set to startup automatically. This means that when the system/server is restarted or rebooted, the CatTools Service will automatically start. This occurs even if no user is logged into the console.


Service Dependencies (particularly Windows 2000 Server and Windows 2003 Server)


Under most operating systems, the CatTools Service will start without problems. On some Windows 2000/2003 Server systems, the CatTools Service may have to wait for some other system Services to start before it can start.


A Service Dependency may be an issue if you see one of the following after a reboot:

  • an error of "One or more system services failed to start" on the console, or
  • the CatTools Service fails to start even though the 'startup type' for the service is set to 'Automatic'.

To test if this is a problem on your system, check the status of the CatTools Service using the Services manager.


Click the Start (button)

Click Run

Type services.msc in the open dialog box

Click OK


Find the 'CatTools' service and check the status column. It should be set to 'started'. If not then it could be a service dependency issue in that the CatTools service failed to start as it was dependent on another service being started first.


For more information on service dependencies see How to add Service Dependencies.
