I have a problem installing a NT-Service with Installshield X. Although it seems that the service is corretly installed after running my setup.exe (and also correctly removed with uninstall), it won't start correctly. The SCM attempts to start the service, but it never reaches the starting point. (For delphi programmers, it reaches TService.Create, but never TService.OnStart).

However, if I install the service manually ("test.exe /install", it's a service created in delphi), it will start without a problem. I already compared the registry, and it is also not a rights problem, or problem interacting with the desktop.

So, it seems that the NT-service installer in InstallShield does some other actions than it normally should do.... Does anybody recognize this problem??
