Help getting a service to run
Trying to get the multi user service for Junior Viewpoint (database program) to run on our new 2008 server. Installed and ran fine on the 2003 server. The install just copies an exe and a dll to the system32 folder and then runs the install command for the service. The problem is it has installed the service as I can now see it in the list of services but can I as heck get it to run. It just fails with Error 2, the system cannot find the file specified. Lood for the file and its there, checkd the service properties and it lists it as being the correct file to run and the correct location. Must be missing something somehwere that hgas changed since server 2003 as we just ran the supplied batch file then and it worked. Have rebooted the server in case that was anything but still no joy.

It may not be compatable with your 2008 server
Is the 2008 server 64bit?
Is the 2003 server 32bit?
If so I think I might know the problem, there are two system folders in windows if its 64 bit, so you might have to copy the dll the syswow64 instead

Well tried that and it didnt work, just same message, even went as far as changing the reg entry so it pointed to the new lcation. Will have to have a word with the developers and see what they say. Meanwhile how an I uninstall the service till I find out whats happening?
Edit: Well I take it all back (gulp!), changed the location in the reg to an absolute specific location i.e. full path and hey presto it starts :-)
