How can I install an executable file as a Windows NT/2000/XP service? Do I have any control over whether the service is started automatically?

Thanks,
Phil

I'm afraid Express doesn't support the install of Services. InstallShield Developer has this support. Is there a way to start a service by running a file on the target machine? If so Express 4 allows you to launch any exe on the target machine (not something you distribute) as a custom action. If so, you might be able to work around this.
