Servicecontrol and permanent Components

I am installing a component into [SystemFolder] which has to be set as permanent due to validation rules. Within this component I am installing and controlling a service. (InstallStart, UninstallStop and UninstallDelete set to Yes)
While uninstalling, the components files will not be removed (because it is permanent) - but also the service will not be stopped and removed from the system. Is this the correct behaviour ? Do I need a custom Action to control the service on uninstall ?

Yes I think this is expected behaviour.
Do you really have to install this service in the system folder?

I agree completely: this is the behavior I would expect. Keep in mind that components are meant to be "atomic": self contained and installed/uninstalled either as a whole or not at all.

As Stefan already said I would move the service out of the system folder and this should solve the problem.
