Thales Simulator Service don't read my config.

 have a problem with the ThalesServiceSimulator.

It installs without any problem and runs OK with the standard configuration.
When I do changes in the ThalesParameters.xml file the Service still run with the standard values.

It is installed on an XP in “c:\program\NTG\Thales Simulator Service”.
I change the ThalesParameters.xml file to use
<Port value="8099" />
<ExpectTrailers value="True" />
<HeaderLength value="50" />

I also changed the ThalesServiceSimulator.exe.config to point at the config
<add key="ParameterFile" value="C:\Program\NTG\Thales Simulator Service\ThalesParameters.xml"/>

 I have also tried the service on a Vista with the same result.

 What do I need to do to make the Service accept my configuration?

 Thanks // Jajjeboj

In ThalesParameters.xml, change the VBSourceDirectory and XMLHostDefinitionsDirectory and assign a value of "C:\Program Files\NTG\Thales Simulator Service". Also copy all XML host command definitions in the "C:\Program Files\NTG\Thales Simulator Service" directory. Please let me know if that fixes the problem.

Thanks for the quick answer.
It fixed the problem.

Just one minor thing. 
The consol command QH shows header lenght 04. 
I have configured 50.
I use 50 from the TCP client and it works as it should.

Connected - Type in commands followed by ENTER.
Message header length: 04
Protocol: Ethernet
Character format: ASCII
IP address:
Well-Known-Port address: 8099

You're right, my oversight. Fixed and uploaded. Thanks for spotting that.
