This is probably very basic. But it would have saved me some time so:
I was following this tutorial on Webdispatcher installation on windows. Everything went great until creating a service for the webdispatcher (11th step).
The problem is ntscmgr.exe is no longer supported
I was able to create it with sc.exe as explained in the note, but I was unable to make the service start.
sc.exe create SAPWebDisp binPath= “<path>\sapwebdisp.exe pf=sapwebdisp.pfl” type= own start= auto
Finally inspired by this blog and the original tutorial I found the answer.
Solution: Open “regedit.exe” and edit the string “ImagePath” under following location.
sapwebdisp.exe service pf=sapwebdisp.pfl
Now it works fine.
Hope it helps someone.
