We have reinstalled openfire server on this Windows Server 2003 box a couple times.
Originally it was installed at C:\Program Files\Openfire
now it is at C:\Program Files (x86)\Openfire
The problem is the Windows service. I was able to run:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Openfire\bin\openfire-service.exe /uninstall
and it said it removed it, however it is still in the services list. But all options are grayed out / gone
Now I can NOT do the C:\Program Files (x86)\Openfire\bin\openfire-service.exe /install
it gives me the error “Could not create service”
I am thinking it was because it was originally installed as a service from Program Files\ not Program Files (x86)\
Is there anything we can do at this point? Or can it never be installed as a service on this machine without major registry work?
