I have a batch file that installs a Windows service. The service needs to run under a specific user account. Does anybody know how to set the user account through the batch file instead of using the Windows "Services" GUI?
To change an existing service, use the
sc config command. To change the "foo" service to use the "DOMAIN\User" credential with the password "password", execute:
sc config foo obj= DOMAIN\User password= password
Be sure to put spaces between the equals signs and the arguments.
If you're using
sc create to create the service just add the
password= arguments and you're done.
