Thanks for the help.
Good news: I have figured out the problem. It seems there is a slight
IDL glitch - the "LoadOrderGroupKey" parameter is not a pointer type.
I have successfully created a Windows service from my Linux machine. I
am planning to add the deleteservice functionality as well and needs to
do some cosmetic changes.
I've downloaded bazar and created a local branch.
Will keep you updated regarding an incoming patch.
Thanks a lot!
