hi
i have successfully managed to build a service in VS2005, i can install it locally via the service setup (right click install) but do nothow how to set this up on a remote server. i have remote desktop connection and full access

i presume it has something to do with publish, this does create a exe, but when ran shows a windows wervice start failure message:
Cannot start service from the command line or a debugger, A windows service must first be inbstalled (using intallutil.exe) .......

i see that this is telling me what to do, but i dont unserstand it.

thanks in advance

Try the following:

Transfer the executable containing your service to the remote machine, start a shell (command prompt), type:
installutil path\filename.exe
replacing path\filename by the full path and name of your executable.

Then type
net start
and check whether your service is already running. If not, type:
net start "name of your service"

If that gives you an error message about your service not being available, you will have to check for its exact name.
Do this either on your own local machine or by opening administration > services.

Hope this helps.
