Can't install TOR as a service on Windows 10
When trying to execute
tor.exe --service install --options -f C:\absolute\path\to\torrc
an is given:
Running on a Post-Win2K OS, so we'll assume that the LocalService account exists. Done with CreateService. Service installed successfully Service failed to start : <unformattable error>
This bug happens when there is something written in the torrc file, but on other attempts it was happening when using
HiddenServiceAuthorizeClient basic PCNAME
and so deleting this line it has been starting again.
If I leave the torrc file empty the error doesn't show up and the service is installed and working.
I tried to differently formatting torrc file, so using LF and CRLF, but the result is the same.
