LogWriter.Dispose method not available in c++

I am using the logging block with a rolling flat file listener in a c++ project. All works fine, until I try to call the Dispose() method on my logWriter object. Looking in the Microsoft documentation, I see that this method is listed as "virtual void Dispose() sealed"

Is there any way for me to reference this method? Without it, the program keeps generating new files with a GUID appended to the beginning of the file name, unless I manually kill the service that's running my program.

Alternatively, is there another solution to my problem?

Thanks a lot,

Have you tried the delete keyword? http://www.atalasoft.com/cs/blogs/stevehawley/archive/2008/08/01/managed-c-and-idisposable.aspx
