I have developped a service:
myService.exe (which is a service) and located in windows/system32

How can I install/unistall  this service using command line ?
(I am doing it through Inno setup, but I need to do it through command line)

You can do a NET STOP MyService and the a REG DELETE


REG DELETE HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\MyService

Well if you need to install it, just add the registry keys you need with REG ADD, or an installer (Wise, Nullsoft,etc..) and start it.

Look at any existing service to see what keys you need. But if its just a process, it won't start correctly.
