Recovery option in Windows Service - MSIX

New Contributor

How can I set the recovery option for a service in MSIX?


I tried adding capabilities (Local System Services and Packaged Services) and using the sc failure command through PSF; however, it didn't work. 

Does MSIX support the service recovery option?

I wouldn't expect the PSF to help on this. More likely, this would have to be supported by settings in the AppXManifest file.


A quick look at Desktop6 schema for services shows there is which I suppose might work.


I have not used this, but I suppose maybe you can trigger on an event log event that the service stopped and take action.

Thanks @TIMOTHY MANGAN , I will check this
