Error when starting distributor service

Topics: Logging Application Block

Hi, I was able to install the distributor service successfully and was able to get it working initially.  But now, when I try to start it, it will start successfully but will immediately display some message saying that the distributor service had stopped.  Anyone encountered this before?

Thanks for any suggestions.

I suspect you modified your config.  Did you add any entlib application block?  Or any custom object?  If you add like for example the validation application block, you should also put the Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Validation assembly to the same location where your config is.  If you add a custom object, make sure its assembly is also deployed to that location.

Yes, that was the problem.  Realized it right after I made the post.  Thanks for your help anyway.
