Invalid user account in C# Installer setup

    Hi,

    I've created a simple window service using VS2008 and added ProjectInstaller.cs file in it with all required settings of serviceInstaller & serviceProcessInstaller. During the installation, the installer asks for user name / password with some other input. The service installs successfully if I give valid user credentials. For this I am using a service.account in my domain who is having all permissions. (The service should run under a specific user account to client machine and not under localService or LocalMachine account)

    I then upgraded the project to VS 2010 and tried to install the service in the same fashion as I did in VS2008. This time service gave me Win32 exception (NativeErrorCode = 1332) error.

    I've added a Setup & deployment project to install/uninstall the service. A also tried with installutil.exe but no success. I am not sure where did I make the mistake as I did not change even a single line but upgrade the system.

    I am using Windows 7 as OS and VSTS 2010 Premium as dev env.

    Can anyone help please?
