Hi All ,
I am packaging the driver application which also contains one service . I installed the drivers using DIFxApp.msm and it is installing the drivers properly. The problem is that the service is not installing at all.
I checked the servicecontrol table and ServiceInstall table, the entries are as follows:
ServiceControl: Hardlock
Name Hardlock
Event 161
Arguments
wait 1
Component Component

ServiceInstall Table:

Name : Hardlock
Display Name: Hardlock
ServiceInstall :Hardlock
Service Type :1
Start Type :2
Error Control :1



Can anyone find the incorrect data in the above tables ? Guide me on how to proceed further...

Thanks in Advance

Component Component is most likely your problem, unless the component really *is* called 'Component'! You need to specify the name of the component containing the service executable.

As usual, a verbose log would tell you SOOOOOOO much...

The Hardlock USB dongle device drivers are available in MSI format. Check with your vendor.

huh again i missed some info....

ServiceControl: Hardlock
Name Hardlock
Event 161
Arguments
wait 1
Component Component ( contains the service control entry only )

ServiceInstall Table:

Name : Hardlock
Display Name: Hardlock
ServiceInstall :Hardlock
Service Type :1
Start Type :2
Error Control :1
Component : Hardlock.sys1( contains the service executable )


I found out one more thing , service type=1 ( for driver services ) are not supported by Windows Installer . Does it mean the services won't be listed in the services.msc ? If so , is there any method to acheive it..


Thanks in Advance..

Most dongle vendors also provide merge modules for them too.
