windows service did not get installed
Posted on 2008-11-07
I have created a very simple windows service that I'm trying to test. This is the first windows service I have created, so I'm sure I've missed a step.
I built the service and setup projects without errors. Everything was successful.
However, after I created the setup/deployment project and tried to install the service, the msi installer created the directory /Program Files/company name/program name/ and all the files were listed in the directory, but the service does not show up in the services control panel list. It never got installed as a service.
What am I missing?
Please let me know if I need to attach any code to help spot my error?
I'm running Visual Studio 2005.
Thanks for any help.
