It's a fairly old machine that was a spare, but I upgraded it to XP SP2
just a few days ago. But yes the original XP installation is some years
old. I installed it whilst logged on as a local admin (but not
specifically the Administrator account), and I told it to run as SYSTEM
using the GUI.

Right. I had already seen that bugzilla thread before posting here but
it didn't really apply to my scenario.
I executed WPKGSrv.exe /install and it installed the service with no
problem. WPKG Service now appears in the Services list within the MMC.
When I run WPKGSrv.exe /debug I get the following:
C:\Program Files\wpkg>WPKGSrv.exe /debug
Debugging WPKG Service.
Microsoft (R) Windows Script Host Version 5.6

At this point it appears to hang and I don't get a cursor. In the Event
Log I see three entries for WSH reporting that Time Synchronization
occurred. That's it.
I only have two packages: Acrobat Reader 8.1.1 and time synchronization.
Acrobat Reader was already installed by WPKG when I ran the script
manually using \\pdc\wpkg\wpkg-start.bat (modified for my setup of
course). I don't know if I should have had a message saying WPKG ignored
Adobe Acrobat Reader, because I didn't get one.
I went into the Services snapin and attempted to start WPKG Service. I
received the following message as a popup messagebox:
"The WPKG Service service on Local Computer started and then stopped.
Some services stop automatically when they have no work to do, for
example the Performance Logs & Alerts service."
In the Event Log I see 6 entries:
Information: WPKG Service trying start...
Information: WPKG Service->RegisterServiceCtrlHandler: successfully done
Information: WPKG Service->SERVICE_START_PENDING: sucessfully done
Information: Set script security context: successfully done
Error: WNetAddConnection2->A specified logon session does not exist. It
may already have been terminated.
Any clues from this?
