Installing Custom Windows Service on Win Server 2008R2

To avoid odd “event log” creation errors or window service installs that seem to go nowhere on a window server 2008 R2 machine (prolly others too), always remember to “run as administrator” with a right mouse click.

Spent a good part of the day trying to track down why an event log could not be created. The installation was NOT executing as administrator, even though I am an administrator on the box. I had to explicitly start Command Prompt with “run as”.
