  • Visual Studio 2010 and later versions

Step 5 Download and install Log Service .NET SDK

Install the Log Service .NET SDK after you build the .NET development environment. The steps are as follows:

  1. Download
  2. of the latest version. Log service. Net SDK is a software development kit that does not require additional installation. You can follow the steps below directly in your own visual studio projects.

Step 6 Start a new Log Service Net project

After installing the .NET development environment and the Log Service .NET SDK, you can create a Log Service Net project. For more information, see the LOGSDKSample project of SLSSDK40 solution in Github.
