I am using enterprise library version 5 in console application for logging.
I don't want to use GAC,
So I copied Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Logging.dll and paste in bin folder of our console application solution in VS2010.
My AppConfig configuration given below here

XML

And my source code is here
C#
using System;
using Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Logging;

namespace Sample.LoggingWithEL
{
     public class Program
    {
        public static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            try
            {
                LogEntry logEntry = new LogEntry();
                logEntry.Message = "Starting up the appplication";

                Logger.Write("Main", "Application Started");
                Console.WriteLine("Hello world");
                Logger.Write("Main", "Application Started");
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                Logger.Write("Main", ex.Message);
            }
            Console.ReadLine();
        }
    }
}


here i got exception message which is given below

What does:

"ArgumentException - Event log names must consist of printable characters and cannot contain \\, *, ?, or spaces"

Suggest to you ?
