How do I find the Windows event log?

If the server doesn’t start, or you experience strange errors that cannot be debugged using the regular server log, Windows’ event log is the answer. I recommend that you start the server and provoke the error right before opening the event log, so that the exception comes to the top of the log, and is easy to find. The quickest way of opening the event log is shown below. If you can’t make that work, try to Google ”[your Windows version] open event log” for more help.

How to open the event log viewer:

  • Press the Windows key + R on your keyboard to open the run window. In the run dialog box, type in eventvwr and click OK.
  • Open ‘Windows Logs’ and ‘Application’
  • Look for any log entries from MMRemote Server.
