I just spent several hours getting a program to run as a service on
Windows XP. I created a user account that only belongs to the "Users"
group. I created my service to run in this account. But the service
would not start.
I found that I had to launch the "group policy editor" gpedit.msc and
add the privilege "Log on as a service" to the user account.
I suspect that you already know this. I apologize if I'm being unhelpful.
