  • You can use sc.exe tool to help install and uninstall your window server as below:

    - Open cmd, don't forget run as administrator. And type:

     sc.exe create [SERVICE NAME] binpath= "SERVICE FULL PATH"

    In that: 

    [Service Name] : Name of service will install, it does not allow space.

    SERVICE FULL PATH gives the service exe file full path(absolute path to .exe file).

    For example:

    sc.exe create CRM.TestService binPath= "F:\Project\DemoWindowService\bin\Debug\CRM.FinnalProject.AutoUpdateProductexe"

    - To Uninstall you can use command as below:

     sc.exe delete SERVICE NAME

    For example:

    sc.exe delete CRM.TestSerice
