I have a 3d party software application. On of it's
services fails at startup, but then afterwards I am able
to start it up manually just fine. I wanted to know if
there is a way to delay the startup of this applications
services until all other NT services, etc have been
started?

Thanks for that, but I have a problem. The servcies that
fails to start is a .exe file. When I go into task
manager it is XXX.exe and is not listed as a Service in
Windows NT diagnostics. I cannot delay it if it is not
listed in services.

Then you'll need to get to the bottom of how it starts. Possibly in

%windir%\Profiles\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
%windir%\Profiles\%username%\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

or one of these Run keys.

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
