Given the answer to my colleagues question at https://community.developers.refinitiv.com/questions/64220/rfa-windows-event-log-description-cabt-be-found.html, we are looking at modifying the paths given for the messageFile fields in the Component Loggers.
However, there is a problem found when looking at the RFA 8.1 C++ Edition - Configuration Guide v1.2, page 18 and 19. In addition to the examples using RFA7 instead of RFA8, the example of the Adapter setting is for RFA7_Adapter and the Adapter is mentioned again under the <name> field on page 19, along with RSSL_Cons_Adapter and others. However, there is no RFA8_Adaptor .dll file delivered in the release for Windows (neither in v8.1.2 and 8.1.3).
If I look in the Windows Registry to where the Window Event Logging sets up these entries under "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\EventLog\Application\Adapter", I find it pointing at the RFA7_Adapter120.dll file from the previous release of RFA we had installed, whereas "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\EventLog\Application\RSSL_Adapter" and "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\EventLog\Application\RSSL_Cons_Adapter" are pointing at the version 8 dll files.
Does that mean that the Config guide is incorrect and should remove all mention of the Adaptor ComponentLogger for v8, or is there a deliverable library (eg RFA8_Adaptor120.dll - 120 being for Visual Studio 2013) missing from the RFA Windows v8 releases?
And secondly, where both RFA8_SessionLayer120.dll and RFA8_SessionLayer_OMM120.dll has been provided (similarly for Connections library) which one do we use for the event log messages when setting the Logger\ComponentLoggers\SessionCore or Connections entries?
