How to delete a Windows Service

To delete a windows Service there is a practical and easy command.
 Open a command prompt and digit the command:

sc delete ServiceName

ServiceName  is the name you see when you open the property tab of a service in Windows.


If  "sc delete ServiceName" does not succeed it means you don't have enough privileges to execute this command. In this case open the command prompt as administrator and retry.

Add a new line to a file (ANT)

How do you append lines in ANT?

Two basic things to know:

  • echo task
  • The ant property ${line.separator}

        <echo message="First line. ${line.separator}" file="test_file.txt"/>
        <echo message="Second line ! ${line.separator}" file="test_file.txt" append="true"/>

Notice the "append" attribute on the second echo!

That's all!
