Window Service Setup and deployment to automatic install and start the window service RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have created a window service to read the CSV file and dump that data to database.

    Issue(Setup and Deployment): 

    1. InstallShield

    When I created setup project using installShield then it only install the service in c drive. Then I have to install service manually using InstallUtil command and then need to start the service from services manually.

    2. Using WIX Visual Studio Extension

    As InstallShield have limitation mentioned above. I came to know after explore the internet that using Wix we are able to create installer which install the service automatically.

    Below is the error i am getting though i have provided full control to SYSTEM user and other possible required privileges. I review the Window logs too in the Event Viewer ans same error message present there.

    Please help me out in this regards as i am at a milestone where i am pulling my hair now.

    Please let me know if any additional information is required.
