MSI - Windows Service Restart
I want to create a shortcut that restarts two win32 services (the services themselves have no dependencies).
I was thinking of using an MSI with an Advertised shortcut and the Service Control table however I'm struggling. I get..... insufficient privelidges (1920.). I have.... run as admin, assigned priviledges to the files (to test), specified my user credentials within the Service Control table (again to test). I have manually started the services ok and can start them from the comand line so I'm either missing something or the permissions error is a bit of a red herring.
I'm familiiar with the use of SHIMs and SecEdit but not so much the ServiceControl table.
Any help\ideas would be appreciated.

why do you need to re-start the services via a shortcut?
You can create and start the services via the SC table. This includes starting them on install and stopping them before de-installation...
