I have developed a windows service where in a auto email functionality is incorporated. When i build the solution it didn't gave me any error but asked me to install the service using installutil.exe. When I tried doing that it gives me error that one of the dependencies is missing or the path i am providing is incorrect. I am not getting what am I missing ? Please Help

Try this

C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727> InstallUtil.exe -i "C:Document and Settings\taresh\Desktop\....somepath..\bin\release\servicefilename.exe"

1 solution

The command line for InstallUtil installing a service is :
c:\> InstallUtil.exe -i "c:\somepath\servicefilename.exe"

InstallUtil is in the SDK folder for .net, you must add it to your setup builder so it will be on the target system when installing.
