Just clicked the gmStudio button “.NET IDE” to open a project in Visual Studio and noticed this error in the log that mentions “log4net”. Is this a gmStudio error?

Selected Visual Studio Version: VS2013
log4net:WARN Unable to set property [securityContext] on object [log4net.Appender.FileAppender] using value [log4net.Util.NullSecurityContext.Instance] (with acceptable conversion types)


gmStudio has a batch file call SetEnv.cmd that sets the VS environment by finding and running a batch file called vsvars32.bat.  vsvars32.bat is part of the VS distributions and is version specific.  

I think the error is coming from vsvars32.bat. You may edit SetEnv.cmd, if you want.  We pass in the DevEnv string, e.g., VS2013.
See listing below
