It installs the service OK, and I can see the service using the "sc" and "net" commands in wine.  However I cannot figure out how to start the service.  I've tried using "wine net start {servicename}" , and it says that it started the service, and that the service is already running.  Yet there is no running process for it.

Services do not show up as separate processes.  If you issued the wine 
net start <service> command it it is running you have to start the 
program in that same session. 

There is a thread about this somewhere on the forum or maybe someone 
else can step in to this one to help.
