[Pdns-users] Windows: pdns_server works in a cmd box, but not as a winXP service

I wanted to install pdns on a friends win xp system, but I didn't 
understand, why asking the recursor through pdns_server in a cmd box 
works, but as a xp service not.

Could it be due to wrong configuration during install, and therefor 
wrong configuration options in the registry for the service?

Is the service independant of pdns.conf, but the cmd startup of 
pdns_server depends on pdns.conf?

Should I do an `pdns.exe --unregister-service` (Is that the right option 
to unregister the PowerDNS service ??). And reinstall the service?

What's wrong?

BTW: Should I upgrade to  
http://svn.powerdns.com/PowerDNS%20Recursor.exe (368kb!)
due to security issues (d-o-s attacks), because earlier versions are 
lacking the allow-from option?

Kind regards
