Thanks for the info. I tried the data directory and it didn't help. I'm
running in ODBC mode, but the data directory location is still a factor?
Anyway, something else to try?

RadiusNT overwrites the Mode flag and sets it to zero when you
install it as a service (either from the Admin or on the command line).
This will be fixed in the next update.

All information is stored in the Registry, and detailed in the

Make sure the data directory in the RadiusNT admin points to the
full path of where RadiusNT is installed to. That is usually
the reason why RadiusNT will not start as a service.
