When attempting to install Confluence as a Windows Service through the Windows command prompt...

service.bat install Confluence

The command prompt shows an error and the service is not installed:

Failed installing 'Confluence' service


Windows Administrator privileges are required in order to install a service.


Run the command prompt as an Administrator to have the elevated privileges required to install the Confluence service.
