Thanks for the reply.

I'm running coLinux 0.7.1-hn16 on Windows XP. Here is the output from colinux-daemon.exe --status-driver:

C:\coPlanet\coPlanet>colinux-daemon.exe --status-driver
Cooperative Linux Daemon, 0.7.1-hn16
Compiled on Sun Jul  9 16:35:25 2006

checking if the driver is installed
current state: 4 (fully initialized)
current number of monitors: 0
current linux api version: 10
current periphery api version: 20

so it looks like the CoLinuxDriver driver is installed properly.

To install a coLinux service I run the following:

colinux-daemon.exe "@C:\coPlanet\coPlanet\pl.conf" ro root=/dev/sda1 --install-service "coPlanet"

I tried running with the debugger but I only got the same information that is dumped to stdout when I try and start the service from the console with:

colinux-daemon.exe --run-service "coPlanet"

The installer does a "colinux-daemon.exe --install-driver" and setthe
path for the uninstaller, but does nothing with the system services.

What version of coLinux you are running?
What Windows (XP or W2K)?

Is the coLinux right installed and unused?
Check this, if service is not running:
   colinux-daemon.exe --status-driver

Try to start the debugger:
   colinux-debug-daemon.exe -d -p -s prints=31,misc=31 > file.log
Than run the service from a second prompt, stop debugger with CTRL-C
after the error passed.  Than grep into the output, search the error
line and read detailed error messages some lines before.

What steps do you runs to "install the service"?
Please list your inputs on windows command line.
