Installing Windows Service with LE

Hi there

I am just trying to install a service with the LE. I am using a custom action with a commandline. sc create "Optimiza Service" binpath= [INSTALLDIR]Barloworld.SCS.MT.TaskService.exe start= auto. Nothing seems to happen though and the service definitily does not install. I can execute the commandline manually and it works fine.

Please advise
