Hi all,

my problem is about services. I try comment you all steps for my issue:

My development environment: Windows XP SP2

First, I create Setup Project for install / uninstall Windows Service named
"OGF Servicio Base"

Now, I try test it

I install it, and then uninstall (Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs) but
I get some error.

Then I try delete references about it using regedit:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet003\Services\OGF Servicio Base

Find "OGF Servicio Base" using regedit; results: not found.

Now, open services.msc and "OGF Servicio Base" its appears !!!

When I try to start it manually I get the following: Error 3: The system
cannot find the path specified.

I try open Properties about "OGF Servicio Base" services, I get error (not
found in registry, not found path).

Find again in regedit. But, no luck.

I debug using Process Monitor, when open services.msc I look traces, I see
that services.msc try open HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\OGF
Servicio Base, I don't know why ??

How services.msc get the list all services installed ??

What could be wrong? How do I fix it?

I've search around everywhere. I've found every different version of 'cannot
find the path specified' errors all over the internet and MSDN, but none have
been for my case.

I am frustrated and out of options!

Thank you, in advanced, any suggestions will be appreciated, I need help
