Disable the Download Maps Manager Service

The Download Maps Manager (MapsBroker) service is not started and is causing alerts in the Server Dashboard. This service just starts on demand and is normally not running. There are various ways to disable the service, as on a server it’s very rare that the Mapsbroker service is actually used.

What you get and what you want

1) Disable in Command Prompt:
SC Stop “MapsBroker” && SC Config “MapsBroker” Start= Disabled

If the Service is already stopped and you get error [SC] ControlService FAILED 1062: The service has not been started, use only:
