Hi,

I am trying to repackage Mcaffe Desktop firewall 8.0. I am not able to run the services..
I need to register two services but since the services are of type "service type1" which my installer ( windows installer 2.0) doesn't support. I tried to store the services in to registries but still the application says no services registered.

I tried to store services in tables , but i get a message driver not installed properly..

Can any one plz let me know how do i register the service type1 services. How can the application be MSI ed. Plz help me out..

Can you post the actual registry entries from the commercial installer for the services as well as the reg entries that you have just created?

They are most likely kernel services which Windows Installer doesnt handle terribly well.

Try to get a hold of Service Control or sc.exe. This will let you create a Custom Action to install kernel services but you will require a reboot to start them.

MSIMaker is right. It could be a Kernel service. Try to browse in the reg editor after you have just installed the commercial software and looked for the service key for them. Usually in Hkey_Local_Machine\System\ControlSet\Services\*Name of Service Created*.
If the ImagePath contains value that starts with \??\ it is sure a kernel driver for the service that you are trying to install. [;)]

Actually dj after 15 years as a contractor....I finally got lured to a perm role about a year ago.

It was a very hard adjustment but I have finally got my head around it. So the big bucks days are gone so to speak.....altho the perm role was very plush I have to admit :)
