You are running a service that does not have STDIN, STDOUT nor STDERR,
therefore you cannot write to them. If you want to debug, I suggest
opening a file (local file, service doesn't 'see' substs or network
drives) and writing to that. Maybe Logger or Log4r would be useful.

Another possibility is to use OutputDebugString and DbgView[1], but
I'm not sure if service is allowed to call it.

require 'Win32API'

module Windows
   module Debug
      OutputDebugString              = Win32API.new('kernel32',
'OutputDebugStringA', 'P', 'V')
      def OutputDebugString(message)
