When I installed the latest version of GBAK Scheduler (1.0.10), however, I ran into problems. The main application runs as expected, but I cannot get it to install as a service. I am an admin on the server, so that shouldn't be the issue. When I open the GUI, it gives me an error message saying that "GBAK Scheduler service is not installed." I have run the GBAKSRV.exe several times and it appears to run, but nothing happens.
