Cannot Run Procon as a Windows Service with most recent version


Question

For years I was able to do the sc create command and start procon through windows services, however after doing this now, it says it starts but barely uses any memory or cpu and does not load anything.   I am at a loss of how to troubleshoot this other than reverting back to an older version of procon.  Anyone else with this issue or with a fix?   Any help would be greatly appreciated!  In short V 1.5.3.1 Works as intended but 1.5.3.5 breaks the service.  I may be missing something, but no clue what it is.

What does the error log say in Windows or the debug log for procon?

"Service cannot be started. System.MissingMethodException: Method not found: 'Void PRoCon.Core.Options.OptionsSettings.set_AllowAnonymousUsageData(Boolean)'.
   at PRoCon.Service.PRoConService.OnStart(String[] args)
   at System.ServiceProcess.ServiceBase.ServiceQueuedMainCallback(Object state)

and

"Service cannot be started. The service process could not connect to the service controller

So, the AllowAnonymousUsageData was removed in 1.5.3.5. In your procon.cfg file check to see if this exists in your install. If it does, remove it and try the service again. See if that fixes it.

procon.private.options.AllowAnonymousUsageData
