      Description

      On windows there are three human readable descriptive strings associated with a service:

      Name
      Display Name
      Description

      --serviceName allows you to specify a non default value for name. this is the string used by "net start foo" and "net stop foo" There is no way to specify the Display Name or description with --install or --reinstall. Also if you wanted to have two instances of mongod, DisplayName must be unique.
