Issue with setting up the JSL utility to run a java program as a windows service.

I'm trying to use the following utility: http://jslwin.sourceforge.net/howto.html
to set up a java program to run as a windows service.

Right now I"m just trying to get the TelnetEcho sample up and running. I was able to compile and run it from the command line (not as a service).

Then I ran jsl.exe -install to install it as a service.

Now when I try to start the service I get the error message:
"Windows could not start the TelnetEcho Service on the local computer.
Error 1067: The process terminated unexpectedly."

I have logging enabled in jsl.ini for stderr and stdout but nothing shows up in the log files.

Check the Windows system logs and see if there is any more insight into your problem there.  Are you running on a 64-bit machine?  If you are, try using jsl64.exe instead of jsl.exe.  This sounds a lot like problems I had with Tomcat running on a 64-bit Win 2003 Server install.  The solution there was to find the 64-bit Tomcat binaries so it may be a similar issue.

I'll go ahead and check the system logs and event logs. I'm running on 32bit windows 7.
