SDI/TDI as a Windows Service

NOTE: You must remember to copy the ibmdiservice.exe and ibmdiservice.props files from the <InstallDir>\win32_service folder to your Solution Directory (soldir) before you run the service installer.

It is a common mistake to run the service installer from the wrong folder - i.e. not your soldir. Often this is done from <InstallDir>\win32_service where the .exe and .props files are found.

And if you don't know what the soldir means to an SDI/TDI Server, please have a look here: for this and much more Integrator Know-how you should know.

Note also that you can fire up the Config Editor (CE), ensure the 'Default' Server document points to the same port, install folder and solution directory, and monitor and operate the running server.
