Get service to run under Local Service

I am installing a service and by default it gets installed under the Local System account. How do I change this so that it logons with the Local Service account?

I've tried specifiying "Local Service" and "./Local Service" for the username on the service but no matter what I put, I keep getting a -1923: Verify that you have sufficient privileges to install system services. I've tried giving Administrators Full Control on the permissions of the service file but that didn't seemto do anything.

Anyone know how to do this?

Thanks,
Greg

NT AUTHORITY\LocalService in the User name field and no password did the trick.

Thanks,
