Now run that same command from the root of your "C:" drive, not from within
your snort/bin directory.  See if you get any further information about any
errors.  Running the command from the root of your C: drive better reflects
what actually occurs when Windows starts a service.

  Make SURE you have the paths configured properly. Also make SURE MySQL is
running and accepting the connection. Try running this from the snort/bin

  snort  -c c:\snort\etc\snort.conf -l c:\snort\log -i1 -T

  This will run a diagnosis on your install.

  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??
