Configure entlib after deployment

Hello all.

Not all configuration changes need program changes. For example changing the logging destination from eventlog to file or something like that.

I would love to see that I am not needed to configure every installation or tell my clients to learn the XML syntax. That creates too many errors or too much effort on my side.

Is there a front end like the one for Visual Studio which I could deploy with my application?

That way some events/messages could be handled differently by the clients. Some want to ignore some and some would like to have them logged in any way.

Kind regards

You can definitely distribute and use the EntLibConfig.exe configuration tool as a standalone. If you download the Enterprise Library binaries, it will include the standalone configuration tool. Note that for the executable to work properly it should be distributed with the appropriate Enterprise Library assemblies as well.
