The following code sample adds the SQL Server log provider to the collection using its ProgID. In the console output from the foreach (C#) loop, notice the position in the collection and the name assigned to the newly-added log provider.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;
using Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime;

namespace LogProviders_Tests
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            // The package is one of the SSIS Samples.
            string mySample = @"C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Samples\Integration Services\Package Samples\ExecuteProcess Sample\ExecuteProcess\UsingExecuteProcess.dtsx";

            // Create the Application, and load the sample.
            Application app = new Application();
            Package pkg = app.LoadPackage(mySample, null);
            LogProviders logProvs = pkg.LogProviders;

            // Count the number of providers in the package.
            int countProvs = logProvs.Count;
            Console.WriteLine("Initial number of log providers: {0}", countProvs);

            // Since the package that was loaded only contained the
            // SSIS Log provider for Text files, let's add the SQL
            // Server log provider.
            LogProvider logProv = pkg.LogProviders.Add("DTS.LogProviderSQLServer.1");

            // Count how many log providers are in the collection now.
            countProvs = logProvs.Count;
            Console.WriteLine("The number of log providers now: {0}", countProvs);

            foreach (LogProvider lp in logProvs)
                Console.WriteLine("Log Provider Name: {0}", lp.Name);

Sample Output:

Initial number of log providers: 1

The number of log providers now: 2


Log Provider Name: {FCA3ACD4-C080-4B67-A1AA-45118D3DA672}

Log Provider Name: SSIS log provider for Text files
