Problem with the server when making it a service

Whenever I make the server a service it doesn’t work. I made my The Forest instance into a service and I went to Serivces in windows and turned it on. I went to manage the server and I logged in successfully and started the server but it was displaying very little RAM and 0% CPU usage. I went into the game and the server wasn’t showing in the server list either.

If you started as a non-service and then switched it you can end up with permissions issues, so I'd recommend removing the instance, making it again as a service instance and only installing the server once it's running as a service.
