ServiceProcessInstaller.Account Property

Gets or sets the type of account under which to run this service application.

Namespace:  System.ServiceProcess
Assembly:  System.ServiceProcess (in System.ServiceProcess.dll)
[ServiceProcessDescriptionAttribute("ServiceProcessInstallerAccount")]
public ServiceAccount Account { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.ServiceProcess.ServiceAccount
A ServiceAccount that defines the type of account under which the system runs this service. The default is User.

When the Account property is User, the Username and Password properties are used to define an account under which the service application runs.

The Username and Password pair allows the service to run under an account other than the system account. This can, for example, allow the service to start automatically at reboot, when no user is logged on. If you leave either the Username or Password empty and set Account to User, you will be prompted for a valid user name and password at installation.

You can also specify that the service run under the local system account, or as a local or network service. See the ServiceAccount enumeration for details on types of accounts.
