Thanks to gtamir's excellent article (http://www.codeproject.com/dotnet/ScriptedServiceInstall.asp) about xcopy deployment, I was able to remove the MSI installer from the package and supply a real xcopy deployment procedure, thus making the installation much more controlled.
You can download the latest version here: http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=106617
In the near future I will create some sample applications in java and .Net that demonstrate how RunAsService can be used and configured.... read more
The msi installer is removed from the package, and installation is made that simple that it is just a matter of extracting the zip file and running the Install.cmd batch file.
Making xcopy installing working, even for windows services.
The beta version is released.
Please check it out and inform me of any problems.
I'll try to fix anything found before November 1st, after that I will create the first release version.
It has been wuite some time since I could spent some time on this project.
Altough the product itself already was fairly finished, the documentation needed to be written.
Most if this has been done yesterday night.
I also improved exception handling in the configuration management.
Very soon a beta release will be created and published.
