Logistic Loss doesn't work

I want to evaluate the prediction probabilities of a classifier via logistic loss.
My workflow is <Classifier> --> Apply Model --> Performance (Classification).

I choose logistic loss as main criterion, but whatever I do, I always get the following output:
logistic_loss: ∞

What am I doing wrong?

    please post your process setup (like it is described here  http://rapid-i.com/rapidforum/index.php/topic,4654.0.html), so that we can see what you are doing right now and give you hints on how to improve it.
