Not abel to create DTS.LogProviderTextFile.2 when running SSIS from .Net

Recently I was trying to execute a SSIS package from C# .Net code and it was not working as expected. So I decided to get the logs from the package. Unfortunately there was no logs. So I decided to inject the LogProvider and ConnectionManager from my C# code during execution.

Google lead me to a MSDN link which explains the same.

I selected SQL Server 2012 to get more accurate code snippet. The BIDS version I used was VS2010 based.

But I got below exception when I run the sample code.

A first chance exception of type 'Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.DtsRuntimeException' occurred in Microsoft.SqlServer.ManagedDTS.dll

Additional information: The log provider type "DTS.LogProviderTextFile.2, {0A039101-ACC1-4E06-943F-279948323883}" specified for log provider "{652479A1-923C-452D-9328-5F703624B5FC}" is not recognized as a valid log provider type. This error occurs when an attempt is made to create a log provider for unknown log provider type. Verify the spelling in the log provider type name.

Googled again and was not able to get much help. So decided to debug myself. I added LogProvider from BIDS UI and checked its type in Visual Studio before executing the package. It says the type is "DTS.LogProviderTextFile.3". It clearly indicate that if we create log provider with .3 suffix, it will work. I tried and it succeeded.

So if the target SSIS run time is SQL 2012 change the provider type to DTS.LogProviderTextFile.3.
