Install Build Agents - MS Windows Installer - Can't install service on Windows 8.1 pro

Installation goes fine, when I get to the step "Select Service Account for Agent", and enter the credentials for the currently logged in user (who is in the Administrators group), I get an error.

Screenshot attached. See the error, and the User Accounts window there.

What could be the problem?

Ok. Solved the problem.

It's not enough to just make the user a member of the Administrators's group. You also need to modify the Local Security Policy:

Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Local Security Policy->Local Policy->User Rights Assignment->Log on as a service

And add your user ther.
