Error: Microsoft SharePoint Services Administration is not running

description

I'm developing a simple web part in Visual Basic. My dev machine, MAXSVR01 (With Visual Studio.NET 2008 installed) is running Windows Server 2003 with MOSS 2007. I've installed WSPBuilder, and have successfully used the Tools | WSPBuilder | Build WSP command. However, when I attempt to use the Deploy command, I receive the following error in output:
 
Upgrading the solution!
WSPBuilder
Version: 0.9.8.0830
Created by Carsten Keutmann
GPL License 2007
Microsoft SharePoint Services Administration is not running on MAXSVR01
Preflight requirements failed.
 
Please advise; any help would be greatly appreciated.

It simply means that the 'Windows SharePoint Services Administration' is not running on your box. The solution is very easy; go to Start > Control Panel > Administration Tools > Services, locate the 'Windows SharePoint Services Administration' service in the list, and click the 'Start Service' link or button.

This may be a dumb question here:
Should this be set to automatic?

Or in the case of Sharepoint 2010, it's in Start > Control Panel > Administration Tools > Services, then locate Sharepoint 2010 Administration service and click Start the Service.
