What is the Enable Command?:
Enable Command Syntax:
enable servicename [startuptype]
servicename = This is the name of the specific service or driver you want to enable.
startuptype = This is the startup type that the service or driver should be set to.
Note: Valid startup types include SERVICE_BOOT_START, SERVICE_SYSTEM_START, SERVICE_AUTO_START, and SERVICE_DEMAND_START.
Enable Command Examples:
In the above example, since no startup type is specified for the netman service, the enable command displays the current startup type on screen.
Using the enable command in this way without a startup type is a useful preparatory step so you can write down the current startup type before changing it.
enable netman SERVICE_DEMAND_START
In this example, the enable command is used to enable the netman service with a startup type of SERVICE_DEMAND_START.
Enable Command Availability:
The enable command is only available from within the Recovery Console in Windows 2000 and Windows XP.
