I am having trouble installing a custom print service that I inherited from past developers. The application is designed to monitor a shared folder and then print the .PDF documents that are generated by end-user processes to the printer as defined by the user who started the process.
I am unable to install the service using the following command via CMD running as an administrator:
C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\InstallUtil.exe "C:\Program Files (x86)\Madison Capital Management\PrintServiceSetup\PrintService.exe"
The error I receive is as follows:
An exception occurred during the Install phase. System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: The specified service already exists.
I don't understand why the process states that the process already exists because the process name is not in the process list that I receive when I run Get-Services via PowerShell (see attached Services.xlsx
The PrintService is set to run as a domain proxy account called (domain name)\apolloservice. The user account is an administrator on the server and is in granted rights to logon as a service via Local Policy.
My only thought is that the install process is corrupt or the entry in the Windows event log for the service is causing a problem (please see attached screen shots of the logs and install process).
Any thoughts are greatly apprecaited because I have been beating my head against my desk for almost 2 days on this problem.
