Does anyone have ELMAH working with SharePoint 2010? I have the assembly in the bin folder and have what I believe to be the correct entries in the web.config file. I can run the test at http://localhost/elmah.axd/test and generate the test error and can display the error reporting page at http://localhost/elmah.axd but it does not show any errors. I have ELMAH currently configured to retain errors in memory. There was mention in an article about the order of elements in httpModules which I have verified. The site is running on Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 with SharePoint 2010 Foundation and IIS 7. Below are the entries from my web.config:

   <sectionGroup name="Elmah">
    <section name="security" requirePermission="false" type="Elmah.SecuritySectionHandler, Elmah" />
    <section name="errorLog" requirePermission="false" type="Elmah.ErrorLogSectionHandler, Elmah" />
    <section name="errorMail" requirePermission="false" type="Elmah.ErrorMailSectionHandler, Elmah" />
    <section name="errorFilter" requirePermission="false" type="Elmah.ErrorFilterSectionHandler, Elmah" />
    <security allowRemoteAccess="1" />
    <!--<errorlog type="Elmah.XmlFilerErrorLog, Elmah" logPath="~/App_Data" />-->
    <errorLog type="Elmah.MemoryErrorLog, Elmah" size="50" />
     <add verb="POST,GET,HEAD" path="elmah.axd" type="Elmah.ErrorLogPageFactory, Elmah" />
     <add name="ErrorLog" type="Elmah.ErrorLogModule, Elmah" />
     <add name="ErrorMail" type="Elmah.ErrorMailModule, Elmah" />
     <add name="ErrorFilter" type="Elmah.ErrorFilterModule, Elmah" />
     <add name="Elmah" verb="POST,GET,HEAD" path="elmah.axd" preCondition="integratedMode" type="Elmah.ErrorLogPageFactory, Elmah" />

Since you're using IIS7, you need to put the handlers and modules nodes in the system.webserver node instead of system.web node.
