I am installing some of the exe's onto a particular directory \xxx\xxx\bin\......These exe's are suppose to run as service. I am using ServiceAddService to add these services on to Service Manager. Things work fine. But during an OVERWRITE installation, i have to stop the services and install. When i used ServiceStopService function, i am getting the error No 1060 - "The specified service does not exist as an installed service." The question is "What is the Installed Service". I presume the services which are created using the ServiceAddService built in function are the service which are installed.

Also, Is it Mandatory to Stop/Kill the existing service before repair/overwrite the existing exe's?

What parameters do you pass to ServiceStopService? I don't think you should pass the path tho the file, but the name of the service.
