RBServer as a Service

edited January 2007 in Server
We have been struggling for quite some time trying to our RBServer
application to work as a Windows service. We have created quite a number of
different services so we're comfortable building them. As an application it
works just fine but when started as a service it doesn't even get to the
main program loop. We are thinking it's some sort of unit initialization
error being caused by our RB units in some sort of "non-standard" order in
the project.

Could you provide me a suggested ordering of the RB units in the project ?

Thank you,
Terry Haan

    Try using ReportBuilder Services to host your report server app as a Windows
    Service. See RBServer\Windows Service and the RBServer Developers Guide
    tutorials for more details.

    We tried our service structure and RB Services with the same result.

    There are no known issues with the ReportBuilder Services. Are you able to
    work thru the tutorial in the Developers Guide and get the example up and
    running?

    Also, as a test try changing the windows account for the service to be your
    user account rather than the local system account. If it works under your
    user account, the issue is related to running the app under the local system
    account.
