I have an existing application that needs to be run as a service. The application dumps some output on the console. I would like to redirect the output to a log file. Any idea how to do this in C#?

Using C# you can do this with the process object. You can run the process and redirect it's standard error/output to a stream. You can then do whatever you want with the output.

and yes you can do this within a windows service.

Cheers,
