Subject re: Log4net not working as expected

Just a thought, since you are declaring the log member in the dll class as static, it might
be getting instantiated before the configuration has run.  Why not either make it property

 protected  static  log4net.ILog log

    return log4net.LogManager.GetLogger("EngineTasksFactory");

or just declare it locally in the method.

I have applications that have multiple assemblies all working as you would expect.

    Hello,  I have an issue with log4net that I was sure was not an issue before. I have a
project which is made up of a few other projects. There's an exe and 4 other dlls. Logging
from the exe works while logging from the dlls does not. Like I say, I know this has worked
before. I've read thru the documentation and everything looks identical. Does anyone see what
I might be doing wrong here or know what the cause may be? Thanks.     Log4net:
