EntLib6: Configuration editor v6 suddenly won't recognize database listeners


First noticed with opening a config file with loggingConfiguration the editor complained that the Microsoft.Enterprise.Logging.Database based trace listener was invalid.

Looks like it can't find this dll. Up until today didn't have any issues with this and used the configuration editor to setup logging.

Today attempted to open the file and now it can't find this dll anymore. Don't know causes.

Not sure where the configuration editor is located either, or even what the executable is called.

To be able to use it at all, found that upon right clicking a config file in Visual Studio, and choosing 'edit configuration file v6' that it will create a temp folder at C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Temp\27ee3a7ef0c94ae489e3819c1e594ba6-v6 .

Then close it, and copy over the two missing dlls into that folder, and run it again double-clicking the executable in that folder.

So whatever mechanism is putting files into that temp directory for the entlib configuration editor isn't pulling over the Data or Logging.Database dlls.

Up until today, it was.
