Service fails to start where "TfsDeployer -d" works fine.

just figgured out how to get it run with the -d option. Now when i try to run the installed service, it instantly stops after being started. In the event-log is no usefull info about a crash or something. Just a Dispose(true) - message. (i already removed the config comment-tags to make the app verbose.)

What is wrong? :)

Hi Christian,

Have you followed the Troubleshooting steps on the Installation page?

Also, when running TfsDeployer with the -d option, are you doing it using the user account which the TfsDeployer service has been configured to run as?

Thank you very much. I just forgot to set the logon-user for the service.
