net start "TAO Implementation Repository Locator"
net start "TAO Implementation Repository Activator"
The Implementation Repository supports start and stop but not pause.
When the Activator is installed using ImR_Activator -c install, it is added with a dependency on a locator service. If you don't wish to also install the locator on the same machine, then you must use the -c install_no_locator option instead.
Any options that are specified along with -c install, will be saved in the registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. For example: ImR_Activator -c install -d 3 -l -m -o activator.ior -x persist.xml -t 30 -orbendpoint iiop://:9988 -orbdebuglevel 1
The order of arguments makes no difference, but you must run -c remove and then -c install if you want to change the parameters.
You can also manually change these using the typical regedit utility.
