SC Borrar No Borrar Servicio

So I'm running Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard and am trying to delete a service with 'sc delete <myservicesname>' and the command seems to execute without complaint, however, when I check the services list after running the command, the service is still there.

¿Alguna idea?

I found Brian's answer correct. -

Brian's answer also helped me out, since I was using powershell, and sc just looked like it did nothing. -

sc in PowerShell is Set-Content; so if you are running in PowerShell, you likely have a file called 'delete' with your service's name as its content

If this is indeed your issue, use

sc.exe delete servicename

Helped me out as well. Thanks - Bennie van der Walt

Service can be marked for deletion, but may not be deleted immediately, since something holds it. See this answer for possible holders:

In my case, I just closed the Computer Management ventana

Most unexpected fix, there is no indication a service is marked for deletion - muy

Make sure to stop the service first then run the sc delete command. It will take care of closing any running process.

You can do something like this in PowerShell, although Remove-Service cmdlet is only available in PowerShell versions 6.0 and up


get-service | Where-Object {$_.Name -eq $SERVICE_NAME} | Stop_Service

    if((Get-Host | Select-Object -ExpandProperty Version).Major -ge 6){
        Remove-Service -Name $SERVICE_NAME
        sc.exe delete $SERVICE_NAME
    Write-Output $_.exception.message

You can find the docs for Remove-Service cmdlet AQUÍ
