Product: PowerShell Studio 2019 (64 Bit)
Build: v5.6.165
OS: Windows 10 Enterprise (64 Bit)
Build: v10.0.17763.0

I am trying to configure a Service Installer to be part of a dependency group... e.g. Only start this service if these ones are running...

I think within the MSI Settings for installing a Service that the "Load Group" may be what I am looking for, but I cannot find any documentation in regards to this option.. please advise

'Load Group' is for setting the service group that the service will run under. A service group is a collection of services that are loaded together at startup. The MSI installer does not support dependencies for services.
Please make a feature request at the following link:

Thanks Brittney,
Are you able to provide a link to any documentation for the options for the packager?

Can you please specify if you need documentation on the packager or the MSI builder or on the service group thing in particular?
