Windows Service OLEDB-connection to Excel-file RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Windows Service that hangs when opening an OLEDB-connection to an Excel-file, like this:
    using (var connection = new OleDbConnection(
    "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" 
    + fileName + ";Extended Properties=\"Excel 8.0\""))
    // start using the connection
    This code works fine when running as a console application. When I debug the Windows Service with Visual Studio, I can step into the code until I hit the call to connection.Open()
