I have a pretty simple service that reads a file and inserts rows to sql server.  I have debugged it and it's working to my satisfaction at this point.  I commented the debugging lines out and did a build.  The build succeeds.  Then I go to the VB command line and change the directory to the location of the exe and run "InstallUtil myProject.exe" and get a successful Commit and install message.  However my service does not appear in the list of services.  I have turned off my VPN firewall and am running all this as Admin.  

Any ideas why it's not installing?
