I created Windows service. The service can be started/stopped manually only, but not through a .bat file (it used to work multiple years ago). The start.bat is written as below:
ECHO Starting service!
SC START MyWinService

The .bat file is in ...\bin\debug\ folder, in which the myWinService.exe is stored.
How to resolve the problem? Thanks.

What I have tried:

Can't start an service through running a .bat file.

Referring to, Just revised the .bat as
net start [your service]
if %errorlevel% == 2 echo Could not start service.
if %errorlevel% == 0 echo Service started successfully.
echo Errorlevel: %errorlevel%
Then it works. Thanks for your review.
