Obviously that was the very first thing I tried way back when. Only to 
find out that there is no way to do just that (i.e., to pass in an 
argument to the service registration that would be passed along with the 
launch of the executable). As a consequence, I had to store the 
arguments (image name etc) in the registry and read them from there. If 
that has changed in later windows versions please point me to the 
appropriate documentation.
