Problems in deploying "Windows Service" using VS 2005 Setup project

I have created simple windows service which just write message to event
log when it starts and stops. I am able to install it succesfully

installutil <service_file.e xe>, where <service_file.e xeis the
executable of the service. (Thanks to Rohan).

But I want to install it using VS 2005 Setup project and I am unable to
do that. I have created a Solution in VS 2005 with 2 simple projects.

First project is simple Windows Service which writes an entry into
event log when it starts and when it stops. Nothing else. I have added
a projectinstalle r also for that. I have used following settings for it

(developed in VS 2005 only):
1. For Service1.cs file, I have kept the default values. i.e. Name of
Service is Service1 only.
2. For ProjectInstalle r.cs file, I have account = LocalSystem and
StartType = Automatic.

Second project is Setup and Deployment project with the "Primary
output" selected for the above project. It does copies the exe file of
the service under program files, BUT doesn't install the service.

I have tried all things but my setup project doesn't install the
service on my PC and I can't see the service under "Services panel" on
my PC. I am running XP professional.

Can anybody help me !!!

Ahoy, Folks! I've been looking all over for this, but I just can't seem to shake any documentation out of the MSDN or from Google. I've reviewed every .NET article on developing Windows Services in the MSDN I've located. I'm developing a Windows Service application. This service reads its configuration data from the system registry (HKLM) where it was deposited by another "manager" application. No problems there.

Hello: I wrote an .exe that I would like to be called by a service I am deploying to a server. However, I am not sure how to tell the setup project to include the .exe. Also, I do not know how to tell the service where the .exe actually resides on the server. I would like to prevent hard-coding it since the software will be distributed to different offices in my company.
