The only way I've found to do this is to edit the registry settings for
the memcached service after it is registered as a service.

Add the necessary start up parameters to the ImagePath value at:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\memcached Server

(at least that worked great for me! :-))

How to increase size of memory when you run memcached
as windows service?

I guess, more general question is:

How to pass parameters to memcached windows service?

I tried to pass "Startup paramaters" to "memcached
Server" windows service, edited registry like this

"C:\memcached\memcached.exe" -d runservice -m 1024

Looks like memcached simply ignores them and starts
with default with 64MB on default port.

Any ideas?
