I have a bat file that is supposed to install a service.

@echo off

SET PROG="TestCSWinWatcherService.exe"
SET FIRSTPART=%WINDIR%"\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v"
SET SECONDPART="\InstallUtil.exe"
SET DOTNETVER=4.0.30319
  IF EXIST %FIRSTPART%%DOTNETVER%%SECONDPART% GOTO install
SET DOTNETVER=2.0.50727
  IF EXIST %FIRSTPART%%DOTNETVER%%SECONDPART% GOTO install
SET DOTNETVER=1.1.4322
  IF EXIST %FIRSTPART%%DOTNETVER%%SECONDPART% GOTO install
SET DOTNETVER=1.0.3705
  IF EXIST %FIRSTPART%%DOTNETVER%%SECONDPART% GOTO install
GOTO fail
:install
  ECHO Found .NET Framework version %DOTNETVER%
  ECHO Installing service %PROG%
  %FIRSTPART%%DOTNETVER%%SECONDPART% %PROG%
  GOTO end
:fail
  echo FAILURE -- Could not find .NET Framework install
:param_error
  echo USAGE: installNETservie.bat [install type (I or U)] [application (.exe)]
:end
  ECHO DONE!!!
  Pause

Open in new window


I get the following error and the install rolls back.

"system.argumentexception : Must specify value for source"

Then obviously the problem is with TestCSWinWatcherService.exe , should be addressed by the developer of it, probably using information from this article:

I followed the article and still the same results.  Is there a way to send my project to any of you to have it evaluated? It's just a test service that doesn't really do anything except setup watching directory.

Sure, put in zip file and upload right here.

If e-e says some extensions aren't allowed, post and we will give another place to upload.

1. in solution explorer, remove your installer1.cs. Open the folder and remove theose files as well.
2. select service1.cs
3. go to the main window, where normally you see the code. For service1.cs this window is grey, and has one item - fswatchertest
4. right-click and "add installer".
5. review two new objects that will appear in the grey window. Specify credentials and start type.
