How to add a meaningful description for BES65 Windows Service

Problem:

How to add a meaningful description for BES65 Windows Service

Resolution:

Product Name: AppServer

Product Version: 6.5

Product Component: scu

Platform/OS Version: Windows XP

Problem Description:

How to amend/edit the service "description" when the customer running a BES65/BAS66 as a Windows Service in the Windows Control panel -> Administrative Tools -> Services -> BES65 (properties of BES65 Service)

Answer/Solution:

When the user starts the BES as a windows service by running >scu -install BES65, this would start a BES as the Windows Services but however the customer cannot amend the service description as the way they want. In order to have a more meanful service description, go to regedit

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\BES65, adding a string value "Description", with the description you want to put it then it would appear in the Control panel BES service description.

I"ve attached two screen shots to show you how it looks like after and before Service description changes.
