Tutorial :Error 1001 in my Windows Service app setup project


I'm trying to install my Windows Service app using Visual Studio 2008 Setup and Deployment project. I have created a user account that has "Run as a Service" right and have set the ServiceProcessInstaller.Account to System.ServiceProcess.ServiceAccount.User and also the username and password to the user that I have created previously.

spInstaller.Account = System.ServiceProcess.ServiceAccount.User;  spInstaller.Username = "USER NAME";  spInstaller.Password = "PASSWORD";    sInstaller.ServiceName = "SERVICE NAME";  sInstaller.StartType = System.ServiceProcess.ServiceStartMode.Automatic;  

But during the setup process, I get the following error:

Error: 1001. The account name is invalid or does not exist, or the password is invalid for the account name specified

Any ideas why I get this error and how I can fix it? Thanks.


Are you specifying a Domain for your UserName. I.e. if you machine is called FASTCAR have you tried

spInstaller.UserName = "FASTCAR\\UserName";
