Thanks for the great product! It has really helped all of us here at

Along with our web work, we also do some development on Windows
Services and Windows Form applications. And, I've always wanted a
logging system as easy to setup and use as ELMAH for the non-web side
of .NET. So, earlier this week I sat down and decided that it was time
to look through the source and see if it was an option. And, you know
what, it looked possible.

So, after a few nights of development I've got a very early
implementation of ELMAH which is able to be dropped into a Windows
Service and run just like normal ELMAH does on a website. The values
from the configuration file are automatically loaded and used to
configure the appropriate modules. And, only modules which appear in
the config file are loaded and bound to the exception handling events.

But, I'm not even remotely sure that this is a direction which you
want to take your project in. So, I thought I would write to this
discussion group and see if this is something you're interested in?

If you are, just let me know and I'd be happy to answer any questions
or do whatever you need.
