This will probably seem like a fairly easy question for some of you...

I have been unsuccessful at finding information on how to install a service that one of my developers wrote in IIS 6.0 on Windows server 2003.  I have the executable file but how do I make/hook it up to the service in IIS.... We have MQ installed... do you know if I need to contact our MQ guy to do this?

Thanks for any direction on this!  I'd like to get this knocked out this monring if not by the end of the day!

Thanks!

i searched for InstalUtil.exe on my computer, went to that directory and tried to run

Installutil.exe GCISOnline.exe  AND
Installutil.ese D:\path\GCSI.exe

I got an error both times. I noticed the installutil.exe is in a .net folder but this service in snot written in .net...

Thanks

Are you sure that the app has been designed to run as a service? Many CGI managers do not need to run as a service.
Anyway, if the exe has been designed as a service just run it giving install as parameter, like

D:\path\GCSI.exe install

but if the programmer has used a different switch... will not work, you have to ask the author.

If is just a common exe, this solution is for you: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Visual_Basic/Q_20702627.html?query=how+install+service&topics=93
