Subject Re: What appender to use for development?
Date Thu, 09 Aug 2001 01:47:09 GMT
I use a modified version of the NTEventLogAppender that sends messages to
OutputDebugString instead of the Event Log... if anyone is interested I can
email it  or commit it into source control...

P.S. You can use the free DebugView
(http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/freeware/debugview.shtml) application to
view the output of OutputDebugString.
