Windows nt service will not read torrc in Document and Settings directory

If a Windows service is added using Tor, the command line looks like this:
tor -nt_service -f "C:\Document and Settings\username\Application Data\Tor\torrc".
However, attempting to start the service yields a "System could not find the file specified" error.
Running the very same command in the cmd window works, though. also, placing a torrc file into the
tor program directory makes it work. Changing the credentials under which the service runs makes no difference.
Please contact me if further details are needed.
