a) You certainly need to start cmd.exe console "As Administrator". (I
see you did that).
b) You cannot install the service twice with the same name. (The
second and later attempts will fail with the same generic message as
above). Try "service.bat remove" first. Verify that it is not listed
as a service (in the Control Panel of Windows). (I had several times
when uninstall did not complete until I rebooted).
