Are you an admin on that system?
Yep. And no error message either. Looked at the native connectors as the last version appears to be for the 5.x series(?)
I'm not on Windows OS, so can't say for sure. But from what I understand, the service.bat that shipped in the AS should work fine. There was an issue in M4 which was fixed later http://community.jboss.org/message/555603
The event log said

The following information was included with the event:
Access is denied.
Failed installing JBAS60SVC
so apparently there is some access problem, the script just failed to report it correctly. What more it requires than local admin is beyond my understanding as I recall having installed other services before...
It installed fine on a 2003 server so I guess it's more of a "script returning wrong value on failure" type of issue.

It's been a while, but have you been able to find out what caused this? I'm having exactly the same problem of not being able to find a JBoss AS service in the list.
Edit, see here:
I am facing the same problem while trying to install JBoss 6 server as window services in windows 32 bit.
After running the services.bat script, it prints 'Service JBoss Application Server 6.0 installed'. But the service is not displayed in service list.
I modified the batch file to print the error level (while ruuning >>service.bat install), the error level displayed was 3. I am not sure what this error level-3
is all about, since as per the script only the following error levels were handled,
if errorlevel 1 echo Invalid command line parameters
if errorlevel 2 echo Failed installing %SVCDISP%
if errorlevel 4 echo Failed removing %SVCDISP%
if errorlevel 6 echo Unknown service mode for %SVCDISP%
Please shed some light on this if any solution was met.
Thanks for the response.
I am using Windows XP.
Two things I've found can cause this. I needed to open a Windows command shell as an Administrator. Also, the service name cannot have spaces within it.
