Windows Service problems

2 New Member
Note:I'm using VB.NET, .NET 2.0, to write a service application. So far I've only attempted to run it on the development machine.

I'm have a couple of problems I can't quite figure out with a windows service I'm writing. The purpose of the service is to backup my Source Safe folders each night over to a machine that gets backed up each night. The 2 main problems I'm having are as follows:

1) If I set the Installer to install the service in the LocalService account context, I get 'access denied' errors when I try to copy the files. I have no problem traversing the folders, however. If I install it under the user account context, and use my username/password it copies just fine. However, the service will not be running on my machine, so I really need to get it to run under the LocalService account...right ?

2) I get a 'The event log is full' when I try to write to my event log. I've tried deleting it and recreating it, tried using .clear, but none of them seem to work. I'm not sure what to do. Note: I've only reached the bit of code that writes to the log file after installing in the user accoutn context described in problem 1) description. I"m able to delete and create the eventsource, but not write to it.

I have created a simple service which just copies a fil to a new file with a new name on certain intervals (the service implements a timer).

I catch the execution of the tick and in the finally-block I write to the eventlog as well. But only one entry is creates...

We're using a 3rd party C DLL in a project that we don't have source for. When we call the DLL from a console app everything works fine. However, when we call it from a Windows Service, the DLL doesn't work (sorry, can't be more descriptive.. no errors, but no results). We've even taken the exact Windows Service project and put code in main() to instantiate the service and call OnStart() instead of going through the service base class. ...

Hi, We have a web service (developed in C# framework 1) that run for some time on Windows 2000. Recently we upgraded it to framework 2 and run successfully on Windows 2000 and XP.

All I have a database table, changes to the data within which I am interested in acting on. The approach that I'm taking is to have the database update a file every time data is updated.

Within my domain is the design of a Windows service to perform the operations required when the data changes. I have not produced a Windows service before...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea...
