What software did you use to set up JBoss AS 4.0.5 as service? If you used a recent version of JBoss Tools, it names the service JBoss Application Server 5.0 by default if you do not change the service.bat script. Also when using the sc command, you need to use the short name for the service, not the display name. The default short name is JBAS50SVC.
