WindowsService account type based on variable

I’m trying to create deployment step template for installing windows service and i want to use custom variable to select account type for Windows Service. In template i create variable #{accounttype}:

And it has a drop-box with values:


For LocalSystem an NetworkService it works perfectly, but for “_CUSTOM” account there is error in deployment:

sc.exe create "TestService" binPath= \"C:\temp\TestService\0.0.1_Deployments-186452\TestService.exe\"  depend= "LanmanWorkstation/TCPIP" start= "auto" obj= " _CUSTOM" 
[SC] CreateService FAILED 1057: 
The account name is invalid or does not exist, or the password is invalid for the account name specified. 

Please help to solve problem - which type of account i must specify for Domain User type?

Kind Regards,
Alexander Yuzhanin

Sorry for this topic, i just find unprintable symbol in “_CUSTOM” text. Now it works fine, topic can be closed.
