Do you use TService?
So run your service exe with Admin privileges as followed:
install : "yourservice /install" or
uninstall "yourservice /uninstall"

sorry my question should be, how do i name it while i'm running the install command (what's the syntax) so that it doesn't just show up as "Service1" in the services window

I am a little confused, but I 'think' you want to be able to install the service you created in Delphi 7 by some other Delphi application. Is that correct? If so...

if shellexecute(handle, nil, Pchar('C:\ServicePath\YourServiceName.exe'), PChar('/install /silent'), nil, SW_SHOW)< 32 then
     begin
       ShowMessage('Unable to find the service executable to install!');
      exit;
     end;

Responding to your question clarification, you name the service application's service name when you created the service in Delphi under the service "forms" Name.

Say you have a service application you created called MyService. You should go to the object inspector and under your Myservice: TMyservice you should see Name where you name the service. You can also set the DisplayName here as well Such as, 'My database service'.

Hope I helped somehow. Still confused a bit.

You can name your service by changing the name property of your service object. I think it is
Service1.DisplayName := 'name';

if you want install service programatically see one of my PAQs:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Pascal/Delphi/Q_23755709.html

if you want to install it from command line open cmd window then type in path and exe name of your service with /install swtich, for example:

c:\myprojects\Service\TestServiceApp.exe / install
