ServiceInstaller objects install Windows services. Here is the inheritance hierarchy of this class:

Object
   MarshalByRefObject
      Component
         Installer
            ComponentInstaller
               ServiceInstaller

You can find the more notable public properties of objects of the Service Installer class in Table 10, their more notable methods in Table 11, and their more notable events in Table 12. Note that I'm including the properties, methods, and events inherited from the Installer and ComponentInstaller classes in these tables.
