Monitoring Service properties.config

Created: 15 Sep 2010 | 2 comments

We recently installed a Monitoring project type as a Windows Service.  However, I noticed that there is not a properties.config file for the project properties stored within the project (at least not that I can find).  Are the project properties stored in a different location for Monitoring project types?

Anytime the process runs, it fails because it is trying to use project properties, but cannot fine the properties.config file in the project directory.

Here is the error captured from the logs:
Error capturing component data. System.Exception: Could not find property file c:\Program Files (x86)\Altiris\Workflow Designer\WorkflowDeploy\Release\CWxBuildAutomationCreateCRService\properties.config

There's probably just a bug in the code that generates the Windows Service exe for the corresponding workflow project that fails to generate the properties file.

Deploy your project (or just run it in the debugger) to a different directory, grab the properties file out of the folder and paste it into the bin directory where the windows server was generated.  That should work fine.

You have to publish to an install directory and the  run the .bat install file.  This will create the properties file.
