How to use the MS Enterprise Library Logging module?

Hi, I'm using VS2012, C# and asp.net
I'm pretty log reading this article, http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn440721%28v=pandp.60%29.aspx 
I also downloaded the example code, http://entlib.codeplex.com/downloads/get/683533 
I'm just completely lost on how to create the configuration object.   Looking at the method BuildProgrammaticConfig()
in the example code doesn't help.  

Need help creating this configuration object so that I can just write exception error to Windows' Event log.  Thank you.

MSEL is a bunch of application blocks. For logging, jump over to

MSEL also has a configuration editor that you can use if you like using a GUI instead of having to mess around with config entries. Its part of the download bundle.

I already downloaded and installed the logging module.  I also just went to the link you provided and downloaded the entire library.  I run all the extract it asked me to.  I noticed there is an application file, Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.ConfigConsoleV6

when I run that it asked if I want to installed Extension to VS2012, should I ?  I'm not sure what it does.
Also, where do I find the GUI configuration?
Thank you.

Yes, the Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.ConfigConsoleV6.vsix file in the download is the Visual Studio extension for the MSEL GUI editor. If you want to use it, you have to apply the extension to your Visual Studio. More info about it is at https://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/029292f0-6e66-424f-8381-3454c8222f9a

Cool!  I executed it.  How do I bring it up, the console?  Sorry, but I clicked on the last link you provided but didn't find information on it.

Try the Tools menu in Visual Studio. You should see a new entry there for this.
