comment Windows Service: Can I configure the current working directory?
@fission: Yes, it does mean I accept your answer. ;) It's not what I had hoped for, but it is as close as it gets, I guess.

comment Windows Service: Can I configure the current working directory?
+1 for creativity. :-) I fully understand that these file operations do not impact performance measurably, so I'm not going to actually bother writing a DLL injection solution. Modifying %PATH% for the user account the service runs under is a decent idea, though.

comment Windows Service: Can I configure the current working directory?
@user35115: Well, to be honest… While tracking down an unrelated problem with procmon, I noticed that a certain I/O-heavy service (a full text indexer) consistently checks for its own files in the wrong locations (pretty dumb). It starts at system32, tries a few more locations, and eventually its own directory. I figured when it would run in its own directory right away, it would do less unnecessary file checks. Not that it would not work currently, yet it made me wonder if there was room for improvement.

No, it isn't a service I wrote. I was hoping some little-known registry setting here.

comment IIS6: How to troubleshoot a 404 error in an ASP.NET application?
Yes. Such a problem would lead to a "directory listing not allowed" message anyway, not to a 404.

If that was the case, I would have seen a failed attempt to access a non-existing path in procmon. Strange enough, the log file directory is empty… WTF?!

comment AD: Can you be member of unlimited groups?
Thanks for the answer. I guess we have to try and find a way to re-work the group structure for that particular user, as we are seeing timeout issues that are probably connected to this in other areas as well.
