Problems with Install
Hi powdarrmonkey I'm having a few issues with the install.
On install I get the attached error messages that stop me installing it on my domain controller. The error that comes up during the install is:
"Service 'Shutdownertron' failed to start. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to start system services." - I should be I'm a domain admin
If I look in the event viewer it says:
EventID: 11920 Type: Error
"Product Shutdownertron - Error 1920. Service 'Shutdownertron' failed to start.... (same as above)
And if I try to start the service manually while the install is waiting at the "Retry" or "Cancel" stage I get:
Could not start the Shutdownertron service on local computer
Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.
I'm logged in as an Admin and I'm trying to install via VNC remotely (Does this matter?)
Any help greatly appreciated

I strongly suggest you don't install the service component on your domain controller - check you've unselected the service (if you selected just the policies and it's doing it anyway, that's probably my fault).

Not if I've botched the installer, which is perfectly possible...!

Ok, I've just checked the installer on one of my machines - pick a custom install, unselect the service, and select the policy templates, and it behaves as expected.

So install install the template on the domain controllers and deploy the msi via gp to the machines which just installed the service yeah?
install like this on the domain controllers:

Send the msi out to some workstations and in their event logs you should see the service starting and showing its current configuration. You might need to do a group policy update first if you're impatient.

Do you have the .Net framework v2 installed?
