SPUG: srvany and Perl service

I using srvany.exe to install a perl service on win NT.
srvany is installed as the "mainservice" using instsrv mainservice d:\services\srvany.exe
To install movefiles. pl (is does what the name implies, looks at a dir and moves the content to a new dir) as a service,
I did the following (which is not working)
- used regedt32.exe to edit the registry info.
- created a new folder "Parameters" under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CURRENTCONTROLSET\mainservice\
- created a new value in Parameters: AppParameters:REG_SZ:pathname of the movefiles.pl (c:\perl\scripts\movefiles.pl)
-created a new value in Parameters: Application:REG_SZ:pathname of perl.exe (c:\perl\bin\perl.exe)
When I restart the "mainservice" from the control panel nothing happens, meaning no files are moved.
The movefiles.pl is only a testscript to see if I can get the service to work.
What am I doing wrong? Any suggestions?
