After trying a few random things, help arrived in the form of the usage
instructions. For those who are interested, see below. For uninstalling, use


D:\python>SmallestService.py uninstall
Unknown command - 'uninstall'
Usage: 'SmallestService.py [options] install|update|remove|start [...]
|stop|restart [...]|debug [...]'
Options for 'install' and 'update' commands only:
 --username domain\username : The Username the service is to run under
 --password password : The password for the username
 --startup [manual|auto|disabled] : How the service starts, default = manual

Subject: [Python Prog on Win32] Uninstalling a service?

I have a few questions about setting up Python services under NT:
When using PythonService.exe to create NT services, how do I get rid of
(delete) an installed service? 

Also, if I change the code for the installed service, do I need to reinstall
the service, or will it automatically recompile the .py file when I stop and
restart the service? 

Is there any documentation for PythonService.exe that might explain these
things (other than the excellent "Python Programming on Win32" book)? I
didn't see any in the help file that ships with Win32 Extensions.
