I'm looking for help in setting up an installation project for a Windows Service? Cannot find any examples and very little documentation on this. Need to be able to handle the initial creation of the service account.

Thanks
Chuck

If you have InstallShield Premier or Professional edition, you can get function ServiceAddService to install Windows Service, but in Express edition, i don't know how to install it.

Unfortunately, there is no built-in support for installing Windows services in InstallShield Express edition. If you have InstallShield Premier or Professional edition, you can also use the Setup Design view (in installation projects) or the Components view to create a component that installs, starts, stops, or deletes a service during installation or uninstallation for Windows Installer based projects. See the Installing, Controlling, and Configuring Windows Services help topic (http://helpnet.flexerasoftware.com/Robo/BIN/Robo.dll?tpc=/robo/projects/installshield18helplib/FAQFilesNTService.htm) for more information.
