Would you mind sharing the complete source code for this service? I guess
there must be something wrong in there.

cheers,

I made the change, but get the exact same error message.

I went back and checked the book again and it reads
(on page 359):

"The files PythonService.exe, win32evtlog.pyd, and
win32service.pyd each have a set of generic messages.
Each file has nine messages for each of the classes
Error, Informational, Warning, and Success."

I tried all three of these AND servicemanager.pyd
and I can't make any of them work.

Mark Hammond, are you out there anywhere?

Regards,
Larry
