Windows Installer doesn't support that. Target of service must be KeyPath of the same Component.

Subject: [wix-users] WIX 3.10: How to create a service referencing a file in a different component ?
I'm trying to create a windows service in WIX 3.10 using a file installed by another component. I want to us the installed file in the service and not have to specify the source location.
The component where the file resides is generated in a build process by heat harvesting about 1200 files into wxs file, so manual editing not an option.
I've tried failed option:
<Directory Id="APP.SDIR" Name="$(var.APP.SDIR)">
<Directory Id="PARSER.SDIR" Name="$(var.PARSER.SDIR)">
<Component Id="create.PARSER.SERVICE" Guid="GUID" >
This returns a link error:
error LGHT0103 : The system cannot find the file 'App\Parser\MailParser.php'
