Install Windows Service with dynamic name (name taken from dialog box during install)

Hello There,

I am trying to create/install Windows Service with dynamic name (name taken from dialog box during installation).

I am using same technique as updating XML file, but its not working
...for instance.....
in the dialog box during installation, I take few properties to update into XML file. For that...I pass value/property as....
[value1], [value2],...so on.

So name/value taken from the dialog box, I need to set that as "Display Name" and the "Service Name" of the service. Such as below....
Display Name: [TestServiceName]

Can someone please suggest how that can be achieved.
Your help is really appreciated.

Thank you in advance!

imorrison,

We do this in an InstallScript Only project via the following code. If this is for Basic MSI, I don't have an answer.

	 	// Register Windows Service
ServiceAddService( strServiceName,
strServiceDisplayName,
strServiceDescription,
szPath ^ strFilename,
TRUE,
""
);
