#474 closed defect (fixed)

Windows: Installer hangs when installing the i2p as a service (if I2P is already installed as a service)

Reported by: killyourtv Owned by:

Component: installer Version: 0.8.6

Parent Tickets:


If a user installs I2P on top of an already existing I2P with the service enabled, the installer will hang. The Quit button cannot be clicked. Clicking the X in the corner seems to roll back the installation.

Running the batch file to install the service yields

C:\Program Files\i2p>install_i2p_service_winnt.bat
wrapper  | Unable to install the I2P Service service - The specified service already exists. (0x431)
goto was unexpected at this time.

Although it's not a "proper solution", for the time being I'll set the service to not be selected by default in the installer.

Related to #472 - uninstalling I2P does not remove the service.
