Hi anybody
I wrote a windows service by visual studio 2010 .
I installed and tested it on my laptop by InstallUtil.exe(from windows\.net\ framework 2 folder).
But when installing it on a windows server 2008 it raise this error:
Please note I have administrator privileged on this server .
C:\c:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\InstallUtil.exe

you use the installutil in the CMD command (DOS Box)? Did you start the CMD command with run as administrator option?

What are you talking about? There is not such thing as "DOS Box" (anymore). This is no a "command" either, just a regular application CMD.EXE.

this is how most people still see it. A DOSBox whether it exists or not anymore. The point was that he had to run it as administrator.
Sergey Alexandrovich Kryukov 20-Jul-11 3:54am    
Sure, a good point. But why repeat wrong terms, only to further confuse people?
--SA
Herman<T>.Instance 20-Jul-11 3:55am    
maybe it is the new term that confuses people ;)

It solved !
However I has administrator privileged , I should run Command prompt windows With "As administrate" option !
I found this link:Service application installation fail[^]

Bookmarked it for future reference.

Thanks. Your solution helped me.
An additional variation.
I find it easier to copy installutil.exe,InstallUtilLib.dll and InstallUtil.exe.config to the target directory.
Then navigate the commandprompt to the target directory and run installutil -i Target.exe
I get sick of mistyping long directory paths and having installutil complain it can't find the target file.

yes by running visual basic cmd prompt as run as administrator it solve the error like
"installation failed,and rollback has been performed".

The question is over 3 years old and you have added nothing at all to the previous solutions. This is likely to attract downvotes
