Service runtime configuration not working

Sep 8, 2016 at 8:40 PM
Using the latest version available with nuget. Have a windows service that installs using the -i option from the command line (and -u successfully uninstalls).
Problem is that the runtime configuration is being ignore, in this case, accountttype and startmode. Here is the line from the app.config file:
<runtime AccountType="NetworkService " StartMode="Automatic" />

None of the settings above are being applied for the runtime. (note the host information all gets set correctly for the service)
The service is installed as local system account and does not automatically start.
Using vs2013/windows 7 x64 with user that has admin rights.

Any ideas?
