[Box Backup] Windows service starts and immediately stops.
Thu, 19 Oct 2006 20:47:37 +0100
I've got a boxbackup server running, version 0.10, and Linux clients. Now I
have come to install my first two Windows clients - and they both have the
I've followed the installation instructions on
http://boxbackup.hostworks.ca/index.php/Compile_on_Windows (using the
pre-compiled build 784).
The daemon runs correctly if you invoke it from the command line manually. The
service installs correctly. But when I try to start the service, I get an
error message telling me that the service stopped immediately.
In the Event Viewer, there's bbackupd.exe recording a "Common
OSFileOpenError", and suggesting that either there's a non-existent config
file, "or bad file referenced therein". I don't understand this, as
running "C:\Program Files\Box Backup\bbackupd.exe" directly from the command
line works fine.
Any help much appreciated.
