VB.NET Service and StreamWriter - File In Use Error

I'm writing a service in VB.NET. Reference the following code:

Dim oStreamWriter As StreamWriter
oStreamWriter = File.CreateText (TempLogFile)
If Err.Number <> 0 Then
EventLog.WriteE ntry("LogServic e", "Error Creating Log File: " & _
TempLogFile & vbCrLf & _
"Error Code: " & Err.Number.ToSt ring & vbCrLf & _
"Descriptio n: " & Err.Description .ToString, & _
EventLogEntryTy pe.Error, 1004)
EventLog.WriteE ntry("LogServic e", "Service Terminating", & _
EventLogEntryTy pe.Error, 1004)
End If
oStreamWriter.W riteLine(buffer )
If Err.Number <> 0 Then
EventLog.WriteE ntry("LogServic e", "Error Writing Log File Header
Row: " & _
ThisLogFile & vbCrLf & _
"Error Code: " & Err.Number.ToSt ring & vbCrLf & _
"Descriptio n: " & Err.Description .ToString, & _
EventLogEntryTy pe.Error, 1005)
EventLog.WriteE ntry("LogServic e", "Service Terminating", & _
EventLogEntryTy pe.Error, 1005)
End If
buffer = ""
Event Log Data Follows:
Event ID: 1004
Error Creating Log File: C:\WINNT\Temp\2 0040714_Securit y.log
Error Code: 57
Description: The process cannot access the file
"C:\WINNT\Temp\ 20040714_Securi ty.log" because it is being used by
another process.

I've configured the Virus scanning to not scan C:\WINNT\Temp thinking
this was causing the issue, but was not. The Event ID traces to the
error check right after File.CreateText . The file does get create (0
byte file) in the folder specified. Service is configured to run as
an identity currently with Local Admin rights also. When testing on
Windows XP development box, works fine. Testing on W2K Server results
in the above error.

Using: MDE 2003 Version 7.1.3008
.NET Framework 1.1 Version 1.1.4322

I have made a simple console application that creates a webpage from my playlist, then uploads it to my webhost.

Hi, I want to create a Service that Reads and Write Files, and Insert and Select Data from a Sql Server Database. I did a little test with a small Service that I wanted to write something to a File when it starts and stops. I did it like this: Protected Overrides Sub OnStart(ByVal args() As String) ' Add code here to start your service. This method should set things ' in motion so your service can do its work.

Hi, I am trying to call a webservice from a windows service application. It works only if I launch the windows service app from VS.Net 2005 (Worked around from Main()) or from a winform test application. However, it generates a kind of security error after I install and start the service in my Window Server machine. I believe that it is related to authentication. The following is the sample code: HttpWebRequest obj =...

I've wrote a windows service that performs simple functions within our application. To ensure safe running of the service - if it errors we want to know where when how - it logs to a text file - in this instance BLAH.log. The code is executed within a timer which runs at 30 second intervals and polls folders. Each part of the process will log to the log file. The service will throw an IOException exception.

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,...
