Once again you need to go down further in the guide to "Configure the actual
snort service".  Changing the the drive won't be an issue. Look at the
following lines:

Guide:  snort /SERVICE /INSTALL -c d:\applications\snort\etc\snort.conf -l
d:\applications\snort\log -ix
You:     snort /SERVICE /INSTALL -de -c c:\snort\etc\snort.conf -l
c:\snort\log -i1

Whats the -de for? What happened to the applications directory? Are you
using that directory?

  You need to go down futher to "Configure the actual snort service" section
below that line.  That was an example.  Your install is on the D: not the C:
if you are following that guide.

    This may not be the forum to ask this question, but I installed snort on
Windows 2000 with no problem.  I then followed the winsnort directions
(http://www.winsnort.com/Winsnort/guides/WinSnortApache.pdf) on installing
snort as a service and received the error "Could not start the Snort service
on Local Computer.  Error 1067: The process terminated unexpectedly."  And
it did not start.  The command I used to install the service was as follows
(from the snort/bin directory):
            snort /SERVICE /INSTALL -de -c c:\snort\etc\snort.conf -l
c:\snort\log -i1

    I also set the service to automatically start. Following is what the
snort service properties path reads "C:\Snort\bin\SNORT /SERVICE"

    Any suggestions??
