Windows Service – Not installing .Net 4 VS2010 - Where is it? ;-)
This is only relevant if your service installs perfect but you can find it – Where is it? It should be identifiable in the services.msc but its not there??
InstallUtil doesn’t complain during install so whats the problem.. ??
Simple & obvious when you know why – in VS2010 when you add your serviceInstaller and your serviceProcessInstaller the parent property doesn’t get set automatically like in previous versions of VS.
Goto your ServiceInstaller and set the Parent property from none to your ProjectInstaller
OR IN THE CASE WHERE YOU HAVE RENAMED THE PROJECTINSTALLER CHANGE THE SETTIGN THERE!
Should work like a gem ;-)
