IISCHAgent.ini settings for IIS Crash/Hang Agent

I've been having some odd problems with ASP on our IIS5 servers farm, so I decided to install the IIS Debug tools from Microsoft, and use the IIS Crash/Hang agent.
I can install it, set it up as a filter, and I can see the service start in the event log.  But however I change the settings file (IISCHAgent.ini) to, the settings listed in the event log on restart stay the same:

IISCrashHangAgent Settings:
Crash agent only is enabled.
Debug level: 0.

Crash agent settings:
LogLocation: \\?\C:\IISDebugTools\logs\.
MaxLogFiles: 10.



The following is in my IISCHAgent.ini file:

[CrashAgent]
Enable=0
LogLocation=c:\iisdebugtools\logs
MaxLogFiles=15
;PreActionCommand=

[HangAgent]
Enable=1
LogLocation=c:\iisdebugtools\logs
MaxLogFiles=10
WriteLog=1
RequestTimeLimit=20
;ActionCommand=iisdump.exe
;MaxActionsAllowed=0

[Global]
DebugLevel=3


(I've tried it with and without the Global section).  All I want is for the hang logging to work so I can pick up some info on what's going on when ASP hangs.  I've tried it out with an infinitely looping ASP script and I get nothing - the Event Log would suggest that it's not picking up the settings from  the ini file.

Any ideas?

Uncomment ActionCommand and MaxActions.
Set MaxActions to a non-zero value - 10 is good.

Should help.  :-)

I have no need for the ActionCommand to fire - I just want to get the log of the last 50 requests that the HangAgent can provide.

Agh.  I can't believe I can be so stupid.  I just switched the IISDebug folder so that Everyone has full control on it... hey presto, it works now.
