 Description  « Hide
Since Vista, services can be set as "automatically delayed" for the start type (

It would be nice if the Control Panel Applet could allow us to start the service delayed because on a developer machine you don't need the service directly at boot. So it can be started with a delay to improve boot performance.

The Service Start Mode can already be set via the Windows Services window/function. I do not see it being necessary to change the "Control Panel Applet"

but most users don't know this, so a checkbox to start firebird delayed in the control panel would be nice.
