I am trying to install a windows service on a remote machine. The service is implemented using TopShelf. I am running the following psexec command:
psexec \\remoteServerName "C:\PathToExe\TopShelfServiceName.exe" "install"
The error I am receiving is:
ERROR - The service terminated abnormally
Topshelf.HostConfigurationException: The service was not properly configured:
[Failure] Command Line An unknown command-line option was found: ARGUMENT: "install"
It appears that I am not running the TopShelf installer, rather executing my exe and passing "install" which is not a valid argument.
Any help is appreciated!
I don't think you need quotes around "install":
psexec \\remoteServerName "C:\PathToExe\TopShelfServiceName.exe" install
