Restart Manager in Windows® 7
Are you aware of the role of restart manager in Windows 7 and want tips to use it efficiently?
Windows 7 restart manager is a service which is used to avoid the unwanted shut down incidences. When you are installing a new software program or updating the existing software, you need to restart system for completing the installation process. At that time system restarts again and again, so you might need to start the application. This is very irritating and may consume a lot of time in completing the task. In that situation, you can use the restart manager and it will maintain the application while running in the previous stage. Compared to the previous operating systems, Windows 7 gives this amazing facility also. You can use this with primary and secondary installers.
Some tips to use and the role of restart manager in Windows 7 are given below:
- Restart manager stops application
- Reduce system restart
- Critical system service
Restart manager stops application
The applications need to register themselves through the Windows function ‘RegisterApplicationRestart()’ for automatic restart. The restart manager stops the application in reverse order, such as Graphical user interface application, console application, Windows service and Windows explorer. The main advantage of the restart manager is that it will ask the permission to do the shut down. This makes our job very easy. There are two installers in this restart manger, such as primary and secondary. The primary installer is called the RM run start section and the secondary installer is called RM join section.
Reduce system restart
The applications, such as Windows Installer 4.0 for installing and automatically servicing, use the restart manager to reduce the system restart. Your service and application should be prepared to be shut down by restart manager. It saves the data and information that are needed for clean restart.
The critical system service cannot be restarted or stopped by the Windows system manager without a system restart. To determine whether a process is critical system service, first register the process by RM register resolution functions and then call the RM get list functions to get the RM process INFO structure. For returning the application, type member as RM Process INFO and it contains RM APP TYPE value. This will set value in RM critical for critical system process.
