The nxlog service will not start up - I get an error 1053 The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.
No log file written to the logging directory so cant troubleshoot any further - nothing in the event logs that helps with any answers.
Anyone have any experience with running this on Windows 2000

Using the following in the config:
<Extension _syslog>
Module xm_syslog
<Input eventlog>
Module im_mseventlog
<Processor p_transform>
Module pm_transformer
Exec $Hostname=hostname();
OutputFormat syslog_rfc5424

Check events prior to that 1053 as well to see if something else can be gleamed from the logs.
You can also attempt to run NXLog in foreground with nxlog.exe -f from the command line. This may give you some additional information.
Make sure that the user running the service has permissions to do so.

Edit: Wouldn't hurt to check your ROOT directive as well to make sure that it is configured properly.
