I don't know if this is possible on a remote machine. If anything, I
would think that you have to have some sort of remoted object or something
of that nature on it which will call InstallUtil.exe . Either that, or you
have to be able to set up a terminal server session of some sort.

Hope this helps.

Dear all, I built a Web Form application to start and stop a Windows Service remotely. I successful tested the application on Windows 2000 server + IIS. I must include the ASPNET user to the Administration group (on server side) to have the necessary authorization to start a Windows Service (I don't understand why "Power User" rights are not enough to do the same thing) Although I'm able to start a service using windows 2000 server...

I have a small Windows Service program that just has a timer on it and it built fine. I try to install it using InstallUtil and I get the following message: System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: The account name is invalid or does not exist, or the password is invalid for the account name specified I am in the same folder my program is in (MyService.exe). I assume it has to do with Logon Credentials.

Hi, I've written a windows service in vb.net, which works very well. The service is installed on my server, but now I would like to be able to start/stop it from any machine on the network. I know the command sc.exe but unfortunately it does not prompt for Username/Password, and those are required otherwise I'll always get the message 'Access denied'. Unless I can bypass authentication to start a windows service ?

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
