I compiled the solution. I can run Arachnode fine from the console.... But...

I installed the service with installutil. Now I can't get the service to start. The console still runs fine though. It keeps failing at...


Configuration system failed to initialize

Copy the ConnectionStrings.config from the Console directory (\bin) into the Service directory (\bin) and it will work.

The DEMO needs to be updated for the Service.  (I just fixed a bug...)

(Don't know who you are - would you register?  Big Smile)

For best service when you require assistance:

  1. Check the DisallowedAbsoluteUris and Exceptions tables first.
  2. Cut and paste actual exceptions from the Exceptions table.
  3. Include screenshots.
