I am working on creating a windows service and i’m coming across something really weird.
I have the following:
Var MainDBFolder As FolderItem MainDBFolder = SpecialFolder.ApplicationData.Child("MySvc") System.Log(System.LogLevelInformation, MainDBFolder.NativePath.ToText)
Now without posting everything, this comes back with the following folder:
No problem so far. Now, in there i create a sqlite db so i can store some data, and everything seems to be working with no issues.
If i open a command prompt (as administrator) and change directory to that folder, it doesn’t exist. Everything exists up to Roaming, but the MySvc folder is missing. So i decided to run a couple of tests.
When the application opens, I run a sql query against the database that is using the folderitem to open. I get the correct number of rows back. So it’s finding the db, but i can’t get to that folder and database file from anywhere. Windows explorer, command prompt, powershell, even as administrator.
This is also running as a service from the services.msc console… So this is not being debugged directly within xojo.
It’s just the weirdest thing. I even do a command to search the entire hard drive for my main.db file, and it comes up as not found… but again, from my xojo service application running as a service, the event viewer shows the log where 2 rows are returned which is all i have written into the database so far.
I’m coming across this because i’m wanting to verify things being written to my database so i’m wanting to open my sqlite db inside of sqlitemanager app.
