making a service for wordpad.exe with sc

Is it possible to make a service for wordpad.exe?

In cmd, I typ the following sentence:

sc create servicewordpad binpath= "C:\Program Files\Windows NT\Accesoires\wordpad.exe"

--> I get the message the service is created.
In the registry en in computer management, I also see the service

When I want to start the service,
I get an error:

error 1053: the service did not respond to start or control request in a timely fashion period



Can somebody help me?

Thanks in advance!!!!!!

No you cannot make wordpad a service. IT IS NOT A SERVICE.
What is it you are trying to do?

I wanted to start the program automatically...

How do I now what is a service and what not..
Isn't any executable file a possible service?

Thank you very much for your quick reply!!

cvdh, no. A service is a service, it is an exe but it is compiled as a service.

If you want to start wordpad at startup, make a link to StartUp folder in your Start Menu.

Uhh...the "Startup" folder in the start menu is for that.

Services are specifically written to be a service.
Random executables are not written to be a service.

Are the programs included in a service pack services that I can start with sc?
Or do I need to create them with sc to add them to my registry?

Or why do you need "sc create..." for??
