Srvinstw.exe not supported in 2008 server
Instead must use: srvany.exe

Also can use the commaand line SC.exe to create a new service that launches "srvany " (e.g. sc create MyService binPath= C:\Windows\System32\srvany.exe DisplayName= "My Custom Service" )

Its not part of Windows Server 2008, you can find it in The Microsoft Server Resource Kit however, in Windows 2003, but I do not know if it still works for 2008.

big_one01: srvany.exe does not exist on my server either.  I know I can use sc.exe but I am sucker for gui's.

lazarus98: I will give it a shot, I agree it does not look like it exists for 2008.

Download the Resource Kit the tool should be listed there. I believe the Windows 2003 tool will work on Windows 2008 server as well
