      Description

      Preface: This has only been tested with 3.8.x and my knowledge of the issue is circa December 2015.

      I run puppet agent on windows via a scheduled task. I set the service to disabled.

      I noticed when upgrading my windows puppet agents that the msi upgrade would fail every time trying to start the service. The failure would result in the msi uninstalling the upgrade and reverting. This would be fixed if the msi detected the existing service startup type and honor that.

      My solution was to set PUPPET_AGENT_STARTUP_MODE=Disabled but I fear others may not discover that option.
