Default Behavior

QoS RSVP is a Win32 service. In Windows XP it won't start until the current user starts it. When the QoS RSVP service is started, it is running as LocalSystem in its own process of rsvp.exe. If the QoS RSVP fails to start, the technical information about the error is added to the Event Log. Windows XP startup should proceed, but a message box should be displayed informing the user that the RSVP service has failed to start.
