Thank you very much. I fixed the problem it must bet he wrong config
file I edited. I deleted the service and installed the service again. I
added the config file to the command line of the service and everything
work fine.

I didn't see any parameter in the service view of Windows so I thought
the default values are in use. But after I installed the service again
still no parameters where visible in the service view of Windows. The
parameters for the service are hidden somewhere.

Again. Thank you very much.


I will read replies only from the mailing list.
