Which version of rails was you using?

win32-service gem is only used for installing - removing the service.

Will be safer if you remove previous version of mongrel_service since
mongrel_service.exe could clash with mongrel_service script, both
located in ruby\bin folder.

I know how you feel. Will also be good to know if you're running a
32bits or x64 bits version of Windows, since WinAPI shown some issues
between platforms.
