NLog not working correctly

PapayPapay Member Dmitriy EvsyukovOrganization: AigrindProject: Best MMORPG
I created a service and run it under IceBox, use NLog for logging.

When I call the Debug, it does not show.
If I call Console.WriteLine - the messages are seen.
What am I doing wrong?
How to configure logging to be able to use NLog?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<nlog xmlns="http://www.nlog-project.org/schemas/NLog.xsd"

  See http://nlog-project.org/wiki/Configuration_file 
  for information on customizing logging rules and outputs.
    <!-- add your targets here -->
    <target xsi:type="Console" name="c" layout="${longdate} ${uppercase:${level}} ${callsite:className=true:includeSourcePath=false:methodName=true}:: ${message}"/>

    <target xsi:type="File" name="f" fileName="${basedir}/logs/${shortdate}.log" layout="${longdate} ${uppercase:${level}} ${message}" />


    <!-- add your logging rules here -->
    <logger name="*" minlevel="Debug" writeTo="c" />

    <logger name="*" minlevel="Trace" writeTo="f" />

    NLog.config not found

    I'm resolved this problem.
    By default, NLog looks for a config file near executing file and not found it because executing file is iceboxnet.exe, but my assembly in another path.
