Using ConsoleTraceListener with a Windows Service RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a 2010 Visual Studio Windows Service Project.  I installed the Windows service on the server.  Everything works great.  What I want to do is to view the trace messages that the windows service outputs to, to a console window.  Can I add the consoletracelistener to a Windows service project? Do I need to create a console project?  Can I add a console window inside the service project, and then when I want to open the window, i just go to the location where the service files are installed and click the console.exe?   Or is this just not possible?
