Have you tried the -XX:HeapDumpPath option as well?

I suspect that your service doesn't have privileges to write to the cwd
of the java process, so it doesn't write to the file. I don't know much
about windows privs, but I suspect that writing to %TEMP% will work,
though I have no idea where %TEMP% points for service runners.
