Window Service Installation issue

Last Modified: 2020-11-25
Hello Experts,
I am trying to install a service in a server (OS Windows Server 2016 installed) and getting the error below.  I am using Installutil.exe tool for this installation.  I already tested the same service in my local PC where it works great.  I am an Admin in the same server.  Any idea?

Thank you in advance!

Error Message
-------------------------
An exception occurred during the Install phase.
System.Security.SecurityException: The source was not found, but some or all event logs could not be searched.  Inaccessible logs: Security.
