	I thought that 'agpm.py' was for Shared Applications...

	For node services, the unpacked zip file needs to go in the 
'NodeServices' directory where the toolkit resides, i.e.

C:\Programs and Files\AGTk-2.4\NodeServices\

It's possible it may be able to go into the User's 'NodeServices' 
directory in their 'Application Data' area.


C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data\AccessGrid\NodeServices

Then in order to actually use the service it must be added within the 
node configuration 'Manage My Node' and with the appropriate service 
manager, you go to 'Add Service' and it should show up.

Now it's possible that what I described was a more 'manual' 
installation.. I don't know, but it's worked for me.
