Hi Guys!

I have written a windows service in .Net 3.5,in development environment i used to register and install the service with visual studio command prompt
Installutil /i "Path"

but in test machine how to register the service as we do not have visual studio command prompt ,we just have .net framework 3.5.

Please advise...

Windows Services are special, because they are hosted by the Service Controller and need to be installed in a special way. You need to develop your Windows Service application in a special way to make it installable. If you do it, you can make it a self-installed application or use an install utility.

Please see this walk-throw MSDN page:

On using install utility:

Will need pretty extensive study to put all pieces together. Thank you, VJ. --SA
