Log auto-update attempts to disk

The "Auto-update Log File" is a text file containing a log of the auto-update process. It is not viewable in the "Log Viewing Pane" in that the processing is done before the user interface is opened. Should a user need assistance with an auto-update problem and post a topic in the forum, this log file can be used by Pete to assist the user in resolving the problem.

Enabling the "Log auto-update attempts to disk" option will allow Media Center Master to create a text file named, AutoUpdate.log, and store it in Media Center Master's hidden user folder. Media Center Master will only create one auto-update log file, and will continue to add logging information to the one file.

Auto-update Log Location


The AutoUpdate.log file can be found through:

Windows XP at C:\Documents and Setting\username\Application Data\Peter Souza IV\Media Center Master (shown in above example)

Windows 7 and Vista at C:\User\username\%AppData%\Roaming\Peter Souza IV\Media Center Master

Or, it can be quickly accessed in Media Center Master through:

Application Menu>Log all output to a file...>Open logs
