    I created a windows service, added Service Installers and created setup project to install the service and it works fine (Followed steps in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/816169/) However to deploy the service in different servers, I would like to create a setup project which can copy the exe and dll in bin folder to a target folder on the destination server and start the windows service. What custom actions should I add and what are the steps to be included in the Installer class of the windows service?
