Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 47325] Stopping a httpd that was run from console

Yes. Suppose I programmatically start a process that runs httpd.exe . I
wouldn't have any console at all. I've tried without success to send terminate
signals to the process (on win32); there doesn't seem to be any functions to
send a CTRL_C_EVENT to:

1. A non-console process (I could be wrong)

2. A process that didn't spawn from a console process (I'm sure about this).

As my program isn't itself a console process, I couldn't terminate the process
I created to run httpd.exe .

All these acrobatics with signals to processes can be avoided if we allow
`httpd.exe -k stop' on the console. I'm curious how you did this, though.
Searched for a pid? Registry key?

"-k" for commandline really won't be necessary if I simply run processes that
fire off "-k install -n ServiceName" and "-k start...". In fact, that is my
current solution now, to uninstall the service once my program exits.

I was only worried that users may not have permissions to create services.

Thanks for the confirmation of my findings. Thought I missed something there.
