This is a bit random. I'm looking at a Windows 2008 R2 server registry.

Path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services

The key 'services' has a lower case 's'. That seems strange when compared to other operating systems.

If you have a 2K8 R2 and a few minutes can you advise if your services key begins with lower case 's' or upper case 'S'. Multiple answers are welcome. Cheers!

Yip, that looks right.

 

I've checked four servers, one of which I personally installed in 2016. All have the lower case 's' in Services.

 

 

 

Here is a screen shot from Windows 7 which uses the same code base.
