Oh my, that blog article is all wrong. I've been trying to evangelize for 12 years this pattern is wrong but it's hard to succeed when the classes are in the .NET framework and the pattern is described in just about every C#/.NET development book.
Please watch this short video of how to 1) create a service 2) create an MSI for the service 3) test the msi/service in 2 minutes.

Subject: [wix-users] Installing Windows Service using WIX
I am trying to create an installer using WIX which installs a Windows Service. I have followed a guide provided in the link<http://avinashkt.blogspot.com/2007/05/how-to-create-installer-using-wix-which.html>, but for some reason I am not able to execute the Installer and getting an exception as follows:

Looking forward for your reply.
