How To: Enable Debugging for OidView
Sometimes we will need to get a log file to determine what is going on with OiDView. Since this is a windows application, we will need to modify a windows environment variable in order to activate the debugging process. To learn how to create environment variables, please see the “How To” post for environment variables or http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310519
1. Create the BS_DEBUG environment variable
In the Environment variables section, create a USER variable BS_DEBUG with the following value:ONBS_DEBUG=ON
2. Restart the OidView application
Remember that you must restart the application. Only then does it take effect. Now, make the problem happen. At this point, a log should have been created in the OidView main directory, named OidView.debug.log.
3. Turn off debugging
To turn off debugging, simply remove the BS_DEBUG USER variable that you created or set the value to OFFBS_DEBUG=OFF
