I installed memcached on my dev box which is Windows 7. Everything worked great. Now I want to install on my test server which is Windows Server 2003.

I want to run memcached as a Windows service, so I open a command prompt and type memcached.exe –d install just as I did on my dev box, and all it does is sit there with no acknowledgement or confirmation. Does anyone have any idea as to what I have to do?

You will likely need to run this command from an elevated command prompt. Right click on the command prompt in the start menu and go to run as Administrator.

yes this is needed. I was getting errors like "failed to install service or service already installed", then ran command as administrator and it got installed and started fine –  Sandeepan Nath Jun 17 '11 at 10:01
