ServiceControl 5.0.2 – Patch release available

Hi everyone,

We’ve just released ServiceControl 5.0.2.

Fixed bugs

  • #3900 Maintenance mode cannot be started for error instances

How to know if you are affected

You are affected if you are using error instances of ServiceControl 5.0.0 or 5.0.1. Audit instances are unaffected.


When an attempt is made to start maintenance mode for an error instance, maintenance mode does not start and the following error is displayed:

System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception (1053): The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

When to upgrade

You should upgrade immediately if you need to start maintenance mode. Otherwise, you should upgrade during your next maintenance window.

Where to get it

You can download the new version of ServiceControl from our website.

With thanks,
The team in Particular
