using Enterprise Library 4.1 Logging Block in Custom Workflow Acti

i all

I want to use the Enterprise Library 4.1 Logging Block to make the tracing
in a Custom Workflow Activity (CWA).
I have written a CrmAsyncService.exe.config as configuration file (reading
settings out of this file from a CWA works.

In the project I referenced the
Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Logging.dll with "Copy Local" set to
true. In the Windows Explorer in the properties of the assembly I can see
that it is a signed assembly.

I copied the assembly Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Logging.dll
along with
in the bin\assembly folder of CRM.

But every time the CWA ist executed I have the following error in the trace
output of CRM:

found the solution my self:

<assemblyBinding xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1">
<probing privatePath="assembly"/>
to the CrmAsyncService.exe.config helped.
Interestingly in the Plugins and CustomWorkflowActities I also reference an
I developed my self and the calling assembly managed to locate it (without
the probing element).

1.CRM Callouts & Microsoft Enterprise Library Application Blocks

We are writing a callout for a project and we would like to use the Microsoft 
Enterprise Library (MEL) for configuration, logging, and data access.  It is 
our enterprise standard to utilize those blocks for those activities on all 
of our efforts.  The problem is that I don't see a readily available 
app.config or web.config file for which I can add the configuration context 
necessary to utilize those features.

I also am very averse to modifying any core Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 
app.config or web.config file because it has the potential of being wiped out 
during any future upgrades.  So far we have envisioned two options but would 
like some community feedback to help us define a best practice.

Option 1: Use the MEL ConfigurationManager to load context from a file and 
execute against that context
PRO: It seems as if it may get us closer 
CON: Externally loaded context does not become the "current context".  
Existing in-house libraries hard-wired to execute against the "current 
context" may not be utilized.

Option 2: Add the configuration context to the machine.config
PRO: We may utlize all existing in-house libraries 
CON: We have a standard to not use the machine.config for anything to avoid 
potential maintenance headaches.

We are leaning towards [Option 2] and changing our standard to allow 
authorized modifications to the machine.config only.  This is because we 
enjoy leveraging the current context in our core libraries to avoid having to 
pass context and configuration information through every layer of our code. it possible to have a multiple Lookup in a custom Workflow acti

3.How to get logged in user GUID in custom component using mscrm 3.0

I am using this code to retrive GUID but it's always return same GUID of 
system user(named SYSTEM in the systemuserbase table).

CrmService service = new CrmService();
service.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;

WhoAmIRequest userRequest = new WhoAmIRequest();
WhoAmIResponse user = (WhoAmIResponse) service.Execute(userRequest);
