Unread post Cannot install as service on Windows Server 2008 32-bit
I'm trying to install TWGS 2.16 as a service on Windows Server 2008, 32-bit edition and TWGSSERV is giving the error "Unable to install/uninstall Game\BLNKSERV.EXE as a service." User Access Control is disabled, and I'm running as an administrator account. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Chris

Since I'm having a hard time getting a new version out, there is a hack that will fix this. I'm going to post a fixed TWGSSERV.EXE on the website so you can just drop that in.

Let me know if that works.

Np. I thought I was going to post the next version within a day, but things have been crazy.
