Failed to initialize logging.
EMSRV failed to startup.

EMSRV: Unloading...



Does this mean that I cannot run EMSRV on a 30 GB NTFS file system? Is there a workaround?

The problem was easy to resolve: emsrv.log was read-only. I used this command to fix it: attrib -r emsrv.log

Neh, we're running it on a Win2K with a 20 GB NTFS partition... Unless your repository is huge, I would suspect your install command didn't quite work...
