P: n/a

hi,
I'm having a problem installing a service created in vb.net 2003 on a
windows 2000 server. I have installed the service on a few XP machines with
out any problems...but the 2 servers (win 2000 server sp4) I have triend
have the same error (both are on diffrent domains and have framework v1.1
installed; 1 is a domain controler, the other is not)

An exception occurred during the Install phase.
System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: The account name is invalid or does
not exist, or the password is invalid for the account name specified

The logged in user has local and network admin rights; i have found a
few posts that just suggest to use a diffrent username when prompted....but
i never get a prompt to try a diffrent user

I installed the service from a command prmpt using installutil.exe; below is
the entire output of the install.
Thanks for any help in advance,

Jason

Under the properties of your ServiceProcessInstaller you can specify the
Account the login with. If you choose User and don't specify a
Username/password you'll be prompted at install time.
