Change the binary path for a Windows service

Do you need to change the path to a binary a Windows sevice is executing? Maybe you want to change the location of where a service is installed?

It can be done suing the command sc and setting the binpath.

It is also possible to update the registry.

The way to update the registry is:

The service can be found at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\<your service name>

I needed to move Splunk so I found one of my services at

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Splunkd
