Sorry, not GameDev related, but I'm not coming up with anything here, so I thought I'd tap this font of knowledge. I need a way to programatically set the "Allow Service to Interact with Desktop" property of a service. I thought maybe there would be an InstallUtil.exe option, but I'm yet to find one. Does anyone know how this can be done? Thanks.

Thanks Ernow. The method I actually ended up going with was to edit the registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\<SERVICE_NAME>

The 256th bit of the value "Type" is that setting, so I just OR it.
