Mine bacula-5.2.10 x64 on windows 7 seems to support the -c parameter even though the help does not list that option

Indeed, if you look at the service entry on a Windows machine after a successful installation of the client, it's simply:

"C:\Program Files\Bacula\bacula-fd.exe" /service -c "C:\Program Files\Bacula\bacula-fd.conf"

I don't know why it's failing to install the service for him, but that command line should get a functioning FD, provided the config is valid.
