  Yes a Windows service can be installed/uninstalled using prunsrv. See the following example
to install the a Windows Service called SCNService:
  prunsrv //IS//SCNService --Install=%CD%\SCNService.exe --Startup=manual --DisplayName=SCNService

ignore such command line arguments, but you should check this with your service just to make
