    While creating object for NewsManger in external windowsservice i got the following error
    "The type initializer for 'Telerik.News.NewsManager' threw an exception."  No error in compilation also.

    I include App.config file and included bellow connection string in it.







    add name="Sitefinity" connectionString="data source=Dbserv01\SQL2005;UID=sa;PWD=Test123;initial catalog=Test" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>

    Hello gopalraman gopal,

    Check the log file. There must be an error thrown before this one you posted. The error you posted is just a result of the actual error that stops the service from initialization. You can use Sitefinity API only in the context of WebService or WCF service.
