Dear Experts,

When installing a service, I always get "Service Installed succesfully". How do I quietly install the service and return the
result of the installation to the installing application?

What I want to do is that on my Tray App the user put a checkmark on an option called "run as a service" the application
installs the service and if any error occur the error is returned in a message to the user ...something like "The service cannot be installed".

Thank you in advance!

Dave.

just append '/silent' at the end of the command
app.exe /install /silent
that should do :)
