The installation of ServiceExe is fairly simple but can vary depending on requirements and preferences.

A minimum run-time environment consists of only three files: The application ServiceExe, a configuration file, and an application which is supposed to run as the Windows service.

It is recommended to put these three files into the same folder, and that folder should not be used for anything else. Although technically not required it helps keep the installation tidy. ServiceExe's executable file ServiceExe.exe as well as the application that runs as the service will be locked throughout the service's run-time. That makes it impossible to rename or remove their parent folders.

The configuration file is a standard Windows configuration file (ini file). Its file name makes up the name of the Windows service.

<Installation folder>
ServiceExe.exe
<Service name>.ini    (Configuration file)
<My Application>.exe    (Application to run as a service)

Example installation:

C:\Program files\MyService
ServiceExe.exe
MyService.ini            (Configuration file)
MyApplication.exe        (Application to run as a service)
