Today I found out that this wait time only exists when if you leave the service manager window open.
What a well designed OS.
Just got another email from a blind user of SourceHut thanking me for caring about accessibility in my work. And honestly, it wasn't difficult. I don't understand why my peers in web development seemingly couldn't give a rat's ass about accessibility. Maybe because at their level of complexity, to them "accessibility" means "a shitload of aira tags and a ton of work", whereas at my level of complexity it means "just keep it simple and don't do anything particularly stupid"
Actually I think it's more than 10 minutes. Probably more like 15-20 minutes.
The service system of windows is especially bad.
Oh you want to make a service out of your program? Please integrate two extra classes into your code so our stupid service manager can start your program. Oh you want to reinstall the service. You can't just reinstall it, no no, please first uninstall it then wait about 10 minutes until it's actually removed, until you can install it again.
I mean service scripts are bad but this is another level.
