NXlog crashes on service start

Reinstall of the application corrects the problem, but doesn't sound like a solution. Anyone else experiencing this issue? Any fixes?

Following is the error from the Application Log:

Have NXLog always forward file on disk (even if it hasn't changed)

I have the following NXLog config below that reads a file from disk and forwards it to another host (syslog). By default, it appears NXLog only forwards the data in the log file if it has changed.

How can you configure 'nxlog.conf' so that it always forwards the file, even if the data hasn't changed?

Module im_file
File "C:\\myfile.txt"

Nxlog CE agent forwarding all Windows Events despite the query level filter

Hello everybody, I'm trying to filter Windows events log with severity/level only from warning to critical, so from level 1 to 3.

Unfortunately, I tried several configurations, but the agent is still forwarding all the events. Like if there were no filters.
