Adding a Windows Service Description

0 comments suggest edit

When building an installer for a Windows Service in VS.NET 2003, conspicuously missing is the ability to specify a description for the service that is displayed in the Services applet.

I’ve written a base installer class that inherits from System.Configuration.Install.Installer for this purpose, but I’ll just present to you the source listings for the methods to add and remove a service description.

Check it out here. I hope you find it useful.
