I have several programs that are installed as a service.

By default, after installation, the service runs as Local System Account.

I can change it through services.msc, service properties to the desired account. Is there a way to do the above using a script ?

  • Found the solution, hope it will hope others. From command line: sc \\server config ServiceName obj= Domain\user password= pass – Ofiris Aug 28 '12 at 20:24
