[Buildbot-devel] Windows 7 Build Slave as a Service

Has anyone been able to get a build slave running on Windows 7 as a
service?   I've had it running on Windows XP for a while now without a
problem.  Under Windows 7, if I manually start it from the commandline
everything is fine, and the service seems to install fine via
buildbot_service.py.  However, the service will not start.

If I try from the services gui it says "The BuildBot service on Local
Computer started and the stopped.  Some services stop automatically if
they are not in use by other services or programs".

If I try to start it from the command line using "net start" it says
"The BuildBot service could not be started.  The service did not
report an error."

Has anyone else seen this problems?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
