run that file as a service on the NT (and all logs end up in the

p.s. mailed the author to circlemud and he said that in next version
this would be fixed. Prob. with a cmdline param specifying the logfile
(no redirection needed).

Hope this helps .... 
Feel free to mail questions to me about this but spare the list ...pls
