"System.Security.SecurityException: The source was not found, but some or all event logs could not be searched. Inaccessible logs: Security" and "EnterpriseLibrary The Zone of the assembly that failed was: Mycomputer"

These errors both occured in my new project that uses enterprise library logging.

First of all thanks to:http://community.codesmithtools.com/forums/t/2126.aspx

PROBLEM Windows XP: "System.Security.SecurityException: The source was not found, but some or all event logs could not be searched.  Inaccessible logs: Security."

SOLUTION: Add the .NET user, "ASPNET", to the "ADMINISTRATORS" group.

My second thanks goes to: http://blogs.microsoft.co.il/blogs/bursteg/archive/2007/07/27/WCF-Test-Client-svcutil.aspx

Disable strong name signing for svcutil.exe by opening a Visual Studio Command Prompt. At the command prompt run: sn -Vr "<program files>\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0A\Bin\SvcUtil.exe"  (replace <program files> with your program files path - ex: c:\Program Files)

God knows, we would have to be better developers if google was not invented :P

Just in case someone stumbles upon this like I did while searching for this Permission-Error.
I got this error using a Windows-Forms-Application because the customer had linked a shortcut to my Application-Exe on his machine with "\\COMPUTERNAME\C$\Application.exe" instead of "C:\Application.exe." - This caused the failure of the System.Security.Permission because of the untrusted intranet use.
