System.NullReferenceException with windows service of DB connection string

I am writting a windows service, and I catch an exception using try:

try { connStr = System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["connStr"].ToString(); } catch (Exception ex) { logger.Error("get the connection string failed,detail:" + ex.ToString()); }

The output is:

get the connection string failed,detail:System.NullReferenceException: not set an instance with a object reference.

It can't get the connection string correctly.

And this is my configuration file(app.config) :

<configuration> <appSettings> <add key="log4net.Internal.Debug" value="true"/> <add key="connStr" value="Data Source=Dolphin-PC;Initial Catalog=jsptpd_SYS;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=sa;Password=ccir"/> </appSettings> </configuration>

Where is wrong? Why can't get the connection string?

I've been searching from google and can't find where is wrong?

Some reason can cause the problem?

The stack track:

2013-12-13 21:37:19,895 [17] ERROR ApplicationInfoLog [(null)] <(null)> - get connection string failed,detail: System.NullReferenceException: not set an instance with a object reference. on Jsptpd.JobScheduler.jsptpdJobScheduler.OnStart(String[] args) location D:\jsptpd\Code\jsptpdJobScheduler\jsptpdJobScheduler\jsptpdJobShedule.cs:line 41


Try this one:

connStr = System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["connStr"].ConnectionString;


It is because your program location don't have a <strong>programName.exe.config</strong> file,the ConfigurationManager can't access the content,so make sure the file exist.

Or you can link there to know more about ConfigurationManager :


You're looking in the wrong part of the ConfigurationManager.

Try putting the ConnectionString in the ConnectionStrings area of the web.config and calling

connStr = System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["connStr"];

If you're still having issues put a breakpoint on the line and see which ConnectionStrings are being loaded.
