Deployment Agent stopped
I have the Deployment Agent installed on a VM in Google Cloud and now and then, it seems to have stopped. When I look in services.msc, I see that the Startup Type is set to Automatic. But I have had to RDP into the server several times to start it manually again. Do you know what could be causing this?

Check "AppVeyor" Windows event log (under "Applications and Services Logs" in Event Viewer).

All I see are info events.
I have one on 10 Nov 3:43:11 AM: "Agent connection is alive"
Then 24 Nov 8:21:45 AM: "Deployment Agent service Start" which is me starting the service manually.

Check "Application" log for any crashes, though it shouldn't crash.

Ok, further digging learns me that the server restarted for a service pack install (at 3:51). After the restart, I can see all sorts of services starting again. But at 3:53 I see:
"A timeout was reached (30000 milliseconds) while waiting for the Appveyor.DeploymentAgent service to connect."
Right before that "A timeout was reached (30000 milliseconds) while waiting for the MsDepSvc service to connect." Related?
And a while before that the same for "google_osconfig_agent".
Maybe these services are trying to perform an outgoing call and the system doesn't have internet connectivity yet?

We're going to set the Startup Type of the service to Automatic (Delayed) and see if that improves the situation.

It seems that setting the startup type to "Automatic (Delayed)" improves this situation. Might be a nice addition to allow one to pass this to the installer. But I automated it by calling
Although I run another installer in between because if I did it too fast after the AppVeyor installer it didn't change the startup type.
