The Service Maintenance Action allows you to automate Windows service installing and uninstalling. It also supports the same operations for kernel and filesystem drivers.

For especially designed services (CRMs, databases, business apps), it is possible to send custom control codes (custom commands). Refer to documentation of a particular service about which codes it can accept.

ServiceSelect a service to install, uninstall, or control. Choose it from the list, or type a service name, or use a variable. Kernel and filesystem drivers are also supported:
  • Simple · a list of all installed services, including kernel and filesystem drivers. The list is split into 4 parts and sorted by service display name in the alphabetic order: normal services, "hexadecimal" services, kernel drivers, and file system drivers.
  • Dynamic · provide a service name or display name (usually from a file or dynamic variable).
Executable Provide a full path with a name of executable when installing a service or driver.
Service infoShows the current status of a service, for example:
  • The service "MSSQLSERVER" is currently running.
  • The "Cryptographic Service" is currently stopped.

The tooltip displays extended service information in real-time.
Activity Choose 1 of 3 activities:
  • Control service · send a custom control command to a service.
  • Install service · installs a Windows service or driver.
  • Uninstall service · uninstalls a service or driver.
Send control code Provide a command (control code) to send to a service. Custom code range is 128 to 255.
BrowseBrowse buttonUse Browse to select a particular file or folder on local disk, network share on LAN (local area network), etc.
Variable WizardVariable Wizard buttonUse dynamic data input—substitute a parameter from a file, web, connected Trigger, other Actions, date and time presets, etc.


  • Dynamic variables & Events of the Service Maintenance. Access the service name, executable, and its statuses after a service was installed, uninstalled, or controlled. Additionally, detailed events regarding the recently performed successful or failed service maintenance are recorded.


The uninstalled service does not automatically disappear from Windows, if the service is running. It disappears when it is stopped and all apps that are using the service are closed.
