We just upgraded DartService from to

We used to call .Install "Service Name", 1, 1 to register our service to run in the LocalSystem account

Now this fails with a 1057 error "Bad Account". This is under XP, Win7 and I presume 2008, 2012 server

It works if I pass a account name "LocalSystem"

Help file says it is supposed to Default to LocalSystem. Seems like something has changed which is not documented in the release history

Thank you for your report. I've tested this under Windows 7 with the included VB6 Echo Server sample and was only able to reproduce your report if I specified an empty string for the Account argument (if no argument was specified, I was unable to reproduce it).

I have entered this as TTWeb5765. For information or updates on its status, please contact jamie.powell@dart.com.

In the meantime, please continue using your workaround, specifying "LocalSystem" for the Account argument.
