201010 - ECHO/PULSE - Windows - Requesting Log Files and Screenshot(s)
How can I access Windows log files and screen shot(s)?
Sending us system and Desktop log files can often help us trouble shoot when there are issues with the Desktop software or a smartpen. If appropriate screenshots of the problem may also be helpful.
NOTE: We only support Echo Desktop, so if you haven't installed the latest version please go to http://www.livescribe.com/en-us/support/echo/setup/.
If you still have an issue, for the system information please go to:
Windows 8/10 - Mouse over the lower left corner of the screen to get the Start icon to appear, right-click, and select "Run". Windows 7 - Click on the "Start" button and then click in the "Search programs and files" field. Vista - Click on the "Start" button and then click in the "Search programs and files" field. Windows XP - Click on the "Start" button and click "Run".
In the field type "msinfo32" and click "OK".
Click "File" and then "Export…" (not "Save").
Give the file a name and save the file to your desired location.
Attach the file to your email@example.com email.
To get the Livescribe logs:
Dock your smartpen.
