i have a tiny app that installs a service. it works fine when i install it and dont specify a username and password. it therefore installs and starts under the local system account.

my goal is to get it to start using a particular account \\europa\sysRB. when i specify the account and the password i get the following error when i try to install:-

Error 1920.Service TestService failed to start. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to start system services.

Can anyone explain what i need to do get this to work?

drop the \\ at the start that is a unc path not what you want in this case.

thx for the heads up. as it turns out that is not the issue, the issue is that i need to have the user setup on the box as one that can install and start services. this needs to be done via a custom action.

Does anyone have any vbs code or cmd line to permission a username to be able to sort out my issue above?

really appreciate any help on this one.
