Enterprise Library 6.0: The LogWriter has not been set for the Logger static class. Set it invoking the Logger.SetLogWriter method

A common approach to create a log entry using the following code-
LogEntry entry = new LogEntry();
entry.Message = "I am logging";
Logger.Write(entry);
This works fine with Enterprise Library 5.0. But in 6.0 it gives the error in the title. We can solve this by the following-
Logger.SetLogWriter(new LogWriterFactory().Create());
LogEntry entry = new LogEntry();
entry.Message = "I am logging";
Logger.Write(entry);
Or we can also try-
IConfigurationSource configurationSource = ConfigurationSourceFactory.Create();
LogWriterFactory logWriterFactory = new LogWriterFactory(configurationSource);
Logger.SetLogWriter(logWriterFactory.Create());
LogEntry entry = new LogEntry();
entry.Message = "I am logging";
Logger.Write(entry);

  4. Works fine for me.

    Raj:
    Ensure that your app.conf/web.config is configured correctly. If you're configuring problematically, check that.

    Why don't you want to use it? It is a little confusing at first, but it does validation and does make the configuration easier.
