Error Creating Windows Service: "System error 1083 has occurred."

P: n/a
I'm puzzled by an error message encountered while creating a Windows Service.
In particular, I'm creating a second Windows Service within a Windows
Service project, using Visual Studio 2005. The first service works fine.
The second service appears to be registered correctly; yet I get the "System
error 1083 has occurred." doing a "NET START ServiceName" in the DOS window
along with:

"The executable program that this service is configured to run in does not
implement the service."

The above message appears in both the DOS-lead apprach to starting the
service, as well as appearing in a dialogue when starting the service in the
MMC. The message also appears in the event log, naturally.

What are the most likely causes for this kind of error??

Gratefully,

Could you show how you are setting up the service from the first (that's
very odd, btw, why not just register them all in the first place)?
