|Note regarding InstallScript versions: The samples on this page have been developed with various versions of InstallShield. Some of them require a minimum InstallShield version or may only work in the one version they have been created for. Often it will be possible to make them compatible with other InstallShield versions.|

This package allows you to manage NT Services directly from InstallScript, without external DLL. It inlcudes .rul and .h files for use in your setup, a sample project that demonstrates the use of the functions, and a sample NT service (Visual C++ 6 source code included).
