Hi Gerald, all

Some comments about this thread:

Installer tools handle the service application in basic general way,
I think the vendor would said non-simple service than non-standard
service. For example MySQL aborts the service start if the configuration
file was not created and edited the variables basedir/datadir if the
install location is different than the default one. Also MySQL has
3 types services: the default MySQL which the image path don't have
argument, a custom service with an extra argument for the service
name and a custom service with 2 extra arguments the --defaults-file=
option and service name.

In my opinion I don't expect that these installer tools does that
task instead I prefer the tool provide me a way for to launch an
external custom DLL or console application which contents the routines
