Using what tool(s)? Are you familiar with the ServiceInstall and ServiceControl tables?

I am new to packaging. Pls tell me the steps for adding the service.
There is one option in wise Installation Expert page.

So your question would best be expressed as:

I am new to application packaging. I am trying to use Wise Installer Editor to stop a service before the package I'm creating gets installed and started after the package is successfully installed

Is that right? Or is it:

I am new to application packaging. I am trying to use Wise Installer Editor to create a package which installs a service and then starts it and which stops the service before it uninstalls that service.

Unfortunately, Wise is a bit dumb in handling services which the project itself isn't dealing with so you'll need to access the tables I mentioned directly, using the 'Setup Editor/Tables' view. Remember, too, that you need to create a Component for this. Do that from the 'Components' tab. Once you have created the component name, you can select a 'Service Control' component. Enter the name of the service you want to stop then use the GUI controls to select what you want to happen on install and uninstall. Lastly, there's always F1 if you're unsure of the next step.

Ummmmmmmmmm....pressing F1?

I think, TBH, you should go back at least 2 steps. Read and digest Phil Wilson's The Definitive Guide To Windows Installer. Without a grasp of WI fundamentals, you'll struggle with concepts and terminology bandies about here.
