I would like to install a service and have 3 questions.

1) Why does the first work and the second does not
sc create Test5000 binPath= "C:\dev\test.exe"
sc create Test5001 binPath= "C:\Program Files (x86)\Test\test.exe"

I have tried double quotes, triple quotes, quad quotes. The binary is present but all I get is Error 193:0xc1

2) Where is the standard place to put data associated with the service

3) Should I create and account?

I am on Windows 7, 64-bit attempting to run a 32-bit binary.

Solution 1


1) was solved by looking at the NMindexing service and noticing that there are quotes around the ImagePath. So passing four quotes each side resolves this to one set of quotes.
