I have created an Object to install a service. The object is then associated with 2 installs. The install goes though fine and adds the service. The second install goes though and leaves it alone. But when uninstalling(either the first or second install), the service is removed(unregistered) from the services window, but the files remain (as expected). I would expect the service to remain as well.

I am not using control NT Services, because they don't seem to work. I register the service via install script in the object. I have the logging disabled so the install should not uninstall.

Can anyone help me?

Try ruinning the uninstall with log mode turn on

msiexec /I "MSI.msi" /L*V c:\mylog.txt

If the service is inside a component, then it should not be remove because there are two reference counts for the component.
