(DLLs) is installed first and configuration patches (XCUs) last.
This would enable configuration change listeners to immediately use the newly
installed program code (like new services) when they receive a change notification.

runtime exception.

A better solution would be a locking mechanism in the configuration, that
prevents any notifications until a lock has been released.

By the way, is it a common scenario that service names are put into the
