Windows Service Install Problems

Hi experts,
     I made a simple web service through visual studio, then used installutil.exe to install it.  When using installutil.exe from the command line window to install the service a window pops up asking for a Username and Password for the service.  I type in the username and password of the windows administrator account and proceed.   However, I get this message on the command line winodw:  An exception occurred during the Install phase.
System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: The account name is invalid or does not ex
ist, or the password is invalid for the account name specified.
What username is the installer looking for?  Any help with the installl would be greatly appreciated.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I figure it out myself.  If you created a network account, in the Username field, you have to enter the domain name and the username using the format \. If you created a local account, in the Username field, enter the computer name and the username using the format \.  Hope this helps anyone with the same problem.
