HI

You have to use MS command prompt

or

just run this

%comspec% /k ""c:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\vcvarsall.bat"" x86_amd64

is your framework path included
C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727

better create a bat file to do the install and add the following to it
@SET FrameworkDir=%SystemRoot%\Microsoft.NET\Framework
@SET FrameworkVersion=v2.0.50727
@set PATH=%FrameworkDir%\%FrameworkVersion%;%PATH%;
installutil bin/"Your Service Name.exe" /ShowCallStack
