Restart ArcIMS Windows Services using a batch file

Last Published: April 25, 2020


Instructions provided describe how to restart ArcIMS Windows Services using a batch file. A batch file can be used to automatically restart the ArcIMS Services, ArcIMS Application Server, ArcIMS Monitor, and ArcIMS Tasker.


  1. Open a new textfile in a text editor and copy the following code:

    @Echo Off

    Net Stop "ArcIMS Tasker 9.2.0"

    Net Stop "ArcIMS Monitor 9.2.0"

    Net Stop "ArcIMS Application Server 9.2.0"

    Echo ArcIMS Services are Stopped.

    Net Start "ArcIMS Application Server 9.2.0"

    Net Start "ArcIMS Monitor 9.2.0"

    Net Start "ArcIMS Tasker 9.2.0"

    Echo ArcIMS Services are Started.

    The Net Start commands above must be edited to work with other versions of ArcIMS. Change the version number so it matches how the service name is listed in the Windows Services dialog.

  2. Save the file with a '.bat' extension.
  3. Double-click the new batch file to restart the ArcIMS services.
