LWE10101 : Howto stop a service with dependencies from a command line or script without question in windows

Symptom:

When you stop a service from the command line and this service has dependencies the system askes you to answer yes or no

Cause:

This is by design

Solution:

The "net stop" command has a parameter which is not commented. This parameter is /yes and will automatically stop all the dependent services too.

So to stop a service with or without dependencies you just type

net stop spooler /yes

The spooler has no dependencies but to stop the enteo esiCore service you can use

net stop esiCore /yes

and it will stop all dependent services too.
