Default Creating a simple .Net service

I have written a simple Windows service using VB.Net.
It compiled ok and I set the installer classes to run
the service under the 'User' option which means I have to
specify an account when I install the service.

When I try and install the service - the installer prompts me
for an account - which I specify - but it then keeps telling me
that the account does not exist or the specified password is
wrong. The account does exist and the password is correct.

I have tried with both local and network accounts. The service
does need to access network resources ie databases on 2 different

Do I need to type in the account names in a certain format?
Any thoughts on how I can get the serice installed ?
