I have followed instructions to install nxlog in a Windows Server Core 2012 machine (no UI only command prompt).

However, when I try to run the service I get: service could not be started

Do you know what I could try to fix this?

This Windows is the instance created automatically by Amazon Beanstalk and without a UI I find this difficult to debug.. so any suggestion is appreciated

Things are difficult to debug with a UI. Please check the nxlog.log log file for information, it should tell you why the service could not start.

It's also possible to start it from the command prompt with nxlog.exe -f, it will print messages to the console this way.
