Hi. I have created a service which I needed to install. Therefore I use
On my dev machine at home I login as Administrator and I have *NO*
In my first attempts with InstallUtil I tried with username =
Administrator and I left the password textboxes blank. No go - it said
An exception occurred during the Install phase.
System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: No mapping between account names
and security IDs was done
So I tried with
username = XYZ\Administrator where XYZ is, say, my machine's name. It
worked this time. I obtained (snip)
The Commit phase completed successfully.
The transacted install has completed.
Now let's start it. In services.msc I try to start it and I get
"Could not start the ... service on Local Computer. Error 1069: The
service did not start due to a logon failure".
I looked in the service's properties. In the tab "Log On" I find that
the "This account" is checked, with the value ".\Administrator" in
username (without the quotes), and the pass = blank. Notice the ".\" in
".\Administrator". This is correct, IMO.
But still, error 1069. Why ?
PS. I have also tried with "Local system account", with the same
result. Please help !
Thank you very much.
