I have built an installer using the Visual Studio setup project wizard. I added my Windows Service and Windows Forms Application to a setup project with custom actions. In the After_Install event of the ProjectInstaller class in the Service application, I programmatically started the service and enabled service desktop interaction.

It installs and uninstalls without any problems to Window 2000 and Windows XP. However, when I tried installing the application on Windows Vista, I encounter this problem:

Error: 2869, Unexpected Error -

After doing some research, I cleared that error by following instructions by Aaron Stebner on MSDN blogs: How to set the NoImpersonate flag for a custom action in Visual Studio 2005

I now have this error to deal with: Access Denied while trying to write AlertService.InstallState and then the installation rolled back.

How can I fix my setup so it will work correctly on Windows Vista?
