I have updated cygrunsrv to version 1.20-1.

It introduces two new command line switches and new functionality:

  -O, --preshutdown

    Starting with Windows Vista/Longhorn, the --preshutdown option
    allows to terminate the service before the real shutdown takes
    place, giving the service up to 3 minutes for its shutdown actions.
    Only one of the --preshutdown/--shutdown options is allowed.  If you
    use --preshutdown on operating systems prior to Vista/Longhorn, it
    will be silently converted to --shutdown at service runtime.

    This option could be interesting especially for services which
    have to do a lot of cleanup action.  postgresql might be a good

  -z, --shutsig <signal>

    Optional signal to send to service application to stop the service
    in case of a system shutdown.  This is useful if your service
    application wants to allow different actions to be taken on a normal
    service stop and on system shutdown.  Note that the --shutsig option
    only has an effect if you use the --preshutdown or --shutdown option.
    The default signal on shutdown is the termination signal set with
    --termsig, TERM otherwise.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin

This includes ideas and comments about the setup utility or Cygwin
