I'm trying to install the DOS client of WPKG on 64-bit Vista Business SP1
and am getting an error.  Apparently it is not installing the "Windows
Packager" service to services.msc.  It looks like the instsrv "Windows
Packager" "C:\Windows\System32\srvany.exe" command is failing.  However,
c:\windows\system32\srvany.exe exists.  Any ideas?


C:\Users\Administrator>copy \\roark\wpkg\files\srvany.exe C:\Windows\System32
        1 file(s) copied.

C:\Users\Administrator>copy \\roark\wpkg\files\instsrv.exe
        1 file(s) copied.

C:\Users\Administrator>instsrv "Windows Packager"

Unable to find the file at the given path.
