I have downloaded and installed LOG4VIEW. How can I start?

First, make sure that your logging application is configured to write log messages using log4net. If you just want to test LOG4VIEW, you can use the application LogEmiter.exe which is installed together with LOG4VIEW. Then, just drag your application exe file from the file explorer to LOG4VIEW. Confirm the settings in the receiver configuration form and press OK. Now, LOG4VIEW is configured to receive messages from your application.

I selected "Save Settings for Files" when adding a log file, now Log4View shows strange behaivor.
