Hello,

I have created an MSI (Created with VS.Net 2005 Deployment Project included
in my Windows Service Project) that installs a Windows Service, but I currently
have to manually start the service.  I created an exe that calls the Net
Start command and included it with my installation, but I can't figure out
how to launch the executable once the setup is complete.

Is it possible to call an executable upon setup completion?  If so, can somebody
walk me through the steps to accomplish this?

Thank you very much!!!!

Chris
