That's strange.  But for development purposes (as opposed to production 
use), I would forget about the windows installer and just install the TC 
.zip binary version into a new directory instead, and create desktop 
shortcuts to the bin/startup.bat and bin/shutdown.bat.  You will not 
have a Windows service for TC as a result, but I think you will find 
shortcuts to the batch files more convenient than shutting down TC via 
MS Control Panel/Services anyway.
