Chris,

 My config file has the same name myservice.dll.config and I was hoping
that the same attributes you have would work.

I run a service with log4net just fine using:

 

<Assembly: log4net.Config.XmlConfigurator(Watch:=True)> 

The app.config nithe service project get's turned into
myservice.dll.config that sites beside of myservice.dll.

For me, it just works.

	Radovan,

	 Can you explain:

	I prefer configure log4net using app.config file or by special
xml file, whose location can be got using service's EXE location
(Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().Location)

	 

	In my test app, which had an APP.config, when I called my
logging DLL, the right appender would get called I assumed by the
attribute

	[Assembly:
log4net.Config.XmlConfigurator(ConfigFile:="mywindowsservice.dll.config"
, Watch:=True)]

	 

	If I use a special file, and I get the the Assembly executing
path, how would I pass this information down to log4net dll, so that the
right appender is called.

	Hello,

	problem is usually caused by wrong config file location. If you
run windows service, then service's current directory is
%systemroot%\system32, not directory, where service's EXE is located on
the harddisk. Because your config file is referenced by relative path,
it can be searched in wrong location.

	I prefer configure log4net using app.config file or by special
xml file, whose location can be got using service's EXE location
(Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().Location)

		Subject: Log4net in a windows service

		Hi,

		I have a logging DLL which uses log4net to log to a
database. I have c# application which calls this logging DLL and log to
the database. Within my logging DLL I perform additional work and hence
it acts as a wrapper for log4net.

		 

		In my C# windows service project, in assemblyinfo.cs I
added 

		 

		Assembly:
log4net.Config.XmlConfigurator(ConfigFile:="mywindowsservice.dll.config"
, Watch:=True)

		 

		This config file is where I set the appeneder. If I run
my unit test it seems to work but it does not work in as a windows
service. I am using system admin privileges so it is not an issue of
previlige.

		 

		Any thoughts?
