Issue:

A log file named UDT_BusinessLayerPlugin_tracelog.svclog in C:\Temp consumes space on the disk.

Cause:

When ActivityTracing" propagateActivity="true" is left in the dll folder, it creates excessive log files that prevents user from deleting existing files.  

Resolution:

This process removes "ActivityTracing" propagateActivity="true"" from the dll config to keep it from creating excessive log files. Once the right values are in place, the user can now delete any existing log files.
