Using Enterprise Library to write in a custom event log


I've started using Enterprise Library 2.0 recently and I've encountered
a problem that seems to be ... well... undocumented :)

Basically, when I set a Trace Listener (formatted event log to be
precise), if i specify the name of a custom event log, the listener
won't log in it.

I've checked in the registry, the log is there. In the event viewer, I
can see the log but enterprise library wont use it. Actually, I've
noticed that if I overwrite "Application" with anything else it doesnt
work either. (like System or Security)

If I write in the log manually (in the code) it works just fine. But
the point of the whole thing is to use the MS Application Blocks so im
trying not to log the error myself.

Is there some kind of access right I have to set somewhere ?

Am I doing something wrong ?



Here's the code I can show you :

I've made a chunk of code to create the event log like so. Right now
its executed everytime the website is started since I'm still in dev.

Private Const cLMI_EVENT_SOURCE As String = "LMIV40"
If Not EventLog.SourceExists(cLMI_EVENT_SOURCE) Then
End If

Then, I've configured the weg.config like so (i've used the
entlibconfig tool)

<loggingConfiguration name="Logging Application Block"
defaultCategory="General" logWarningsWhenNoCategoriesMatch="true">
<add source="Enterprise Library Logging" formatter="Text
log="LMIV40" machineName=""
listenerDataType="Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLi brary.Logging.Configuration.FormattedEventLogTrace ListenerData,

type="Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Loggin g.TraceListeners.FormattedEventLogTraceListener,
Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Logging, Version=,
Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null"
name="LMIV4.0 Tracer" />
<add template="Timestamp: {timestamp}&#xD;&#xA;Message:
