HI,
I created a windows service in VS2005 using C#.
In that for the Project Installer i specified the TYPE as USER.
So everytime I Install the Service it asks for my Username and Password.
But now I want to deploy this service on to Production Server, So should I change the TYPE of my service to Network Service or Something else or is it OK if I will leave it to USER.
Please help me out in this.
Thank you.

In your projectinstaller.cs  below lines should be placed in initializecomponent method .
this.serviceProcessInstaller1.Account = System.ServiceProcess.ServiceAccount.LocalSystem;
                  this.serviceProcessInstaller1.Password = null;
                  this.serviceProcessInstaller1.Username = null;

You can also do this using ServiceProcessInstaller properties window on your projectinstaller design page
