Using the LogWin Module

This module provides a continuous record of activities and tags for debugging over long periods of time. It creates a file into which you can dump the data collection results, and this file continues to grow in size until you stop the logging (data collection) process. Use the LogWin module (local and remote) to record DDE, OPC, and TCP/IP transactions, activate modules, trace tags, and so forth.

To enable the LogWin module as a part of your project:
  1. On the Home tab of the ribbon, in either the Local Management group or the Remote Management group (depending on where the project is being served from), click Tasks. The Execution Tasks dialog is displayed:
