[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Setting up Windows Service

I've created a fresh install of ArchivesSpace on a 2012R2 server. It starts fine when started from the archivesspace.bat file, but the installed service fails to start. I can't see what I've done wrong.

These are the environment variables:

JAVA_HOME=C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre1.8.0_151
Path=C:\ProgramData\Oracle\Java\javapath;C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET File Security\;C:\Windows\system32;C:\Windows;C:\Windows\System32\Wbem;C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre1.8.0_151\bin\

PROCRUN.exe & PROCSRV.exe are copied into the c:\archivesspace folder.

Archivesspace is set to run against MySQL 5.1.48. The jar file is in the lib folder
Volume in drive C has no label.
Volume Serial Number is A66E-AD9D

Directory of C:\archivesspace\lib

19/03/2020  15:17    <DIR>          .
19/03/2020  15:17    <DIR>          ..
11/07/2019  13:43         1,006,956 mysql-connector-java-5.1.48.jar

My config.rb has the 2 jetty references to enable clean shutdown.

I've turned debug logging on in the service settings. This is the tail of that log:-

[2020-03-19 15:22:05] [debug] ( prunsrv.c:1754) [ 3996] Apache Commons Daemon procrun log initialized.

My understanding is that this *should* now work. Could someone help me understand why it's not?

Thanks in advance
