View Full Version : creating a service installer doesnt create the service after install

08-03-2006, 01:31 PM
I have a basic msi project which creates a service. I have created a component, and under 'Install NT Services' I have chosen a service name for the key (exe) file. I have chosen the following details:

Service type: Win32 that runs in its own process
Interact with desktop: No
Start type: auto
Error Control: log the error and continue.

The problem is that after a successful installation, checking the Service Manager in Windows XP SP2 doesnt show the Service name.

Has anyone any idea as to what more I could be doing?
Or perhaps a different method of doing this in my project?

Please help. Thanks in advance.
