WCF hosted in Windows Service

I am writing a WCF Service using MSMQ hosted in a Windows Service on Windows
XP. All the required components are installed (.NET3, MSMQ, etc).

For some reason my service tries to start and then stops right away. I have
looked at everything and can't see anything wrong - in fact, I started this
a few weeks ago and I swear it was running at one point.

I have included the app.config and service code below - any idea why my
service will not stay running? Thanks!

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>

<configuratio n>

<appSettings>

<!-- use appSetting to configure MSMQ queue name -->

<add key="queueTarge t" value=".\privat e$\NodeManagerX act" />

<service name="Node.Mana ger.MessagingSe rvice"

behaviorConfigu ration="Messagi ngServiceBehavi or">

</baseAddresses>

</host>

Nevermind - I found the problem. I was specifying MSMQ binding which doesn't
support the two-way communication specified in my contract. Thanks anyway -
hopefully this helps someone else. :-)

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,...
