I am created a windows service. I install it with the acount property set to "localservice". i also created a gui that controls the service. I can start and stop it fine but the problem when executing a custom command i get and error "Cannot open SeekWare service on computer '.' " SeekWare is the service name. Someone told me that he fixed this problem by installing with the acount property set to "User" . But i want the service to run no mater which user is logged on. Thanks.
