I tried to install murmur as service in windows and experienced the following problem. By default all log messages in windows are displayed as message boxes (to the console in linyx). If you set log file - it will log into specified file instead.
Now the problem is that murmur apparently tries to log 2 messages before logging is intialized (about initializing settings from ini file and using database xxx). In windows it results in message boxes that requires user input. As the result i'm unable to run it as a service.
