If it is not writing to the detail file, you didn't specify the *FULL*
directory in the admin. When RadiusNT runs as a service, its doesn't
have a
userful "current" directory. Therefore if you don't have full
directories in the
admin, you will run into problems. Also note, the users file is NOT a
path, its just a fill found in the data directory.

Also, if you are having problems with RadiusNT starting, check out the
logfile and
service.log files. These should give you enough information to figure
out what
the problem is.
