Description Alex Ellis 2015-10-30 07:32:20 UTC
Issue: When running unit tests through nunit-console in a project making use of the Enterprise library logging stack I am getting the following error:

ReminderTest : System.TypeInitializationException : An exception was thrown by the type initializer for Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Logging.LogX  ----> System.MissingMethodException : Method 'IConfigurationSectionHandler.Create' not found.

I have changed the project's names etc in the output below for posting online. Mono version also included in the details.

Base PC: Windows 7 64-bit.

I do not get this error when running through the standard Microsoft .NET framework and latest NUnit tool.
