windows service couldn’t be started

A few days back while working on a windows service, I used below line for debugging purpose:


This line worked fine and I got my service debugged. Then I tried to deploy service on our server machine. I used below two commands for installing my service

InstallUtil.exe -i 

InstallUtil worked fine but when I fired NET START, it failed saying, service couldn’t be started. I didn’t have any proper explanation of this but by hit and trial I found that line I used for diagnosing (System.Diagnostics.Debugger.Launch()) was creating problem somehow, I just commented that line and everything just worked fine.

If you have some windows service that is having some trouble in starting, then try to check this case.
