i seriously suck at creating installers. can get the WinService to install fine ... but i dont know how to get the installer to make it start. its set for Automatic start, but its not started after the install. why doesnt the installer see that its set for Automatic, and then automatically start it. does it expect me to reboot to start it?
my other problem is how to add an exception to windows firewall for the UPnP service. found some installer code on a German MSDN site ... and it works when using InstallUtil, but is failing when i add it to the Setup and Deployment project. the exception returned isnt helpful either. fun fun.
