The strange thing is ClientLogging is also a singleton, the first one

This is called using:


But it is inside this that the problems arise, on the line as seen

string szLogLevel =

The code just terminates.

Is there anything I can do to prevent this, any pragma.
Could this be because I initialize static variables.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.


Your second flagged failure involves file access. I'm guessing your
first flagged failure also involves file access (maybe reading a config

I can only think of one thing - a security issue: the user your service
is starting as after a reboot is not the same user as you are when you
start it manually, and the former doesn't have access rights to the
required files?

But I'm probably wrong...

I think the singleton thing is a red herring.
