Re: Installing a program as a Windows service on Windows 8.1

You may need to open the properties dialogue for that file and edit
the properties. I have run into similar problems myself (installing a
DLL via a makefile causes the loss of the execute permission in my
case. No idea why.)

To do this, select the file in question in Windows Explorer and press
the right mouse button. You need the security tab and the permissions
are best set to "ful control" - more than necessary, I guess, but
