Unable to uninstall windows service; Service status is disabled

I was trying to uninstall my windows service using cmd>installutil \u ‘sevice.exe’.

But the service is not uninstalling and showing status as ‘Disabled’ in ‘Service Manager’ (Run -> Services.msc).

Windows Service Status Disabled

Windows Service Status Disabled

Also when I try to install the same service again, I was getting “The specified service has been marked for deletion” message.

Fix

  • Make sure you close “Services Manager” (Services.msc) before Install or Uninstall your windows service.
