Creating a deployment package for service

Hello I have an application that is a system service, and now I have to create a deployment package for it.

After installation I need my service to start automatically, and start everytime windows starts.

What do I have to do ?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

In the installer code for your service, include the following:

ServiceProcessInstaller spi = new ServiceProcessInstaller();
spi.Account = ServiceAccount. LocalSystem;
ServiceInstaller si = new ServiceInstaller();
si.ServiceName = "Your Service Name";
si.DisplayName = "Your service name";
si.StartType = ServiceStartMode.Automatic; // THIS IS THE IMPORTANT LINE!!!!!!!

Then register the service as usual.
P.S.  After you register the service, you need to restart the computer to start the service.
