Default Windows Services

I doubt this is the correct forum but it was as close as I could find.

I am unable to find a windows service that I have made.

I have created a windows service with c# in vs.net.
I have done a build.
I have used installutil to install the service which reported success.

Now I can't find the service in the services list.

Does anyone have any idea what step I have missed to cause this?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Solution Found.

I had not included an installer into the service.
The installutil is not an installer but a utility that envokes the installers included in the project.
By adding the installer to hte project then running it against installutil, all went well.
