My setup using the "Install NT Service" component copies the Service exe to the correct folder, and it is listed in the Services applet with all the correct information, but when I start it up, it times out responding to the control function and stops. However, if I then run it from the command line with the /UnRegServer switch, and the /Service switch, and then start it up from the Services applet, it starts up and responds correctly. What's the difference between installing a service using an "Install NT Service" component, and installing it by running it on the command line with the /Service switch? How can I compare the two? Any help appreciated.
