About handling duplicate services

The Workspace Virtualization Agent uses reference counts to properly control the creation, starting, stopping, and deletion of services with the Service Control Manager. The reference count information is stored under HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\FSLX\Parameters\FSL\Services.

For example, a service is run from the base and the same service is then started again through a layer. When you deactivate the layer, the first instance of the service continues to run.
