Installing Apache or MySQL as Windows Services
This article explains how to install Apache or MySQL as windows services.
For MySQL, one can install/remove as service by switching to 
the directory (d: then cd /mywebserver/mysql/bin) where 
mysqld is located and then typing

mysqld --install

mysqld --remove

For Apache, one can install/uninstall as service by switching 
to the directory where httpd is located and then typing

httpd -k install

httpd -k uninstall

We suggest switching to the appropriate bin directory and 
directly executing mysqld or httpd for the install or remove.  

If that does not work, then try using the full path so that 
the service location is clear to the OS.

It is safer to avoid spaces in the directory names.
