I am supposed to use log4cxx in my application. But this is the first time I am working on logging. So I am trying a win32 console application with the use of log4cxx. (I am using visual studio 2008). I've build log4cxx to get the library files apr.lib, aprutil.lib, log4cxx.lib, xml.lib. Linked these files using 'Additional library directories' option of VS2008. The program compiles fine but when I try to build the code, I am getting

I've tried putting the log4cxx.dll in the project directory in project directory at level of .sln file, at level of the code files and in debug directory. But I get the same error in all cases. What may be the problem here?

Thanks.


#include "log4cxx/logger.h"
#include "log4cxx/basicconfigurator.h"
#include "log4cxx/helpers/exception.h"
using namespace log4cxx;
 
#include "iostream"
using namespace std;
 
LoggerPtr logger(Logger::getLogger("Foo"));
void foo()
{
	BasicConfigurator::configure();
	cout<<"FOO";
}

You additionally need to add the .lib files to the Linker - Input - Additional Dependencies.

The ''Additional library directories' id only for omitting the folders of these libs.
