If logview4net is used to watch for the event log it has to use the resource file that is registered with the event log source to translate the message codes to message texts. Perhaps this happens transparently in the windows API. Nethertheless this results in blocking the resource file (dll) so it can't be replaced if logview4net is running.
In software development we have to update this file during the tests.

So it would be great if the EventLogListener could close its connection until the next read so that it doesn't block the resource file.

    I can not repro this in my environment.
