I am following exactly the same steps as U suggested in below link to create a windows service


build status message is "
------ Build started: Project: MyService, Configuration: Debug Any CPU ------
MyService -> C:\Users\artiy\Documents\Visual Studio 2005\Projects\MyService\MyService\bin\Debug\MyService.exe
------ Starting pre-build validation for project 'MyServiceSetup' ------
------ Pre-build validation for project 'MyServiceSetup' completed ------
------ Build started: Project: MyServiceSetup, Configuration: Debug ------
Building file 'C:\Users\artiy\Documents\Visual Studio 2005\Projects\MyService\MyServiceSetup\Debug\MyServiceSetup.msi'...
Packaging file 'MyService.exe'...
========== Build: 2 succeeded or up-to-date, 0 failed, 0 skipped ==========


But at last step I click on intasll in MyServiceSetup, it is giving me following error:

"The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package. This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 2869".

Can you please help me in understanding why this error is coming and what am I doing wrong?

Hi thanks for your reply. I followed the steps as written in the link you suggested. After step no 4 when I pressed "ENTER" button. It opens a Windows installer window with all description in it. But I am not getting what should I do with this window?
