Hi all,

I get an error saying “Source MYSERVICENAME already exists on the local
computer.”

I have XP.

What’s up with that? any help about it, please

Thanks in advance, greetings, regards

Well, is it right?

It should appear in the services applet (mmc), or you could try (at cmd):
NET STOP MYSERVICENAME

the point here being not to stop it, but to see if it exists; if it
doesn't exist you'll get an error saying so.

Note that you need to uninstall a service before you can re-install it.

Ah; scratch that - it might be talking about the error log - which might
suggest that it wasn't properly uninstalled last time.

Try looking under the various keys under
HKLM\System\ControlSet001\Services\Eventlog for a key called
MYSERVICNAME - it might need deleting.

(noting that editing the registry is at your own risk blah blah no

You don't need to be messing around in the registry, just use installutil /u
on the service executable and it will make the necessary changes to the
registry to remove the service from the machine.
