.logappend (Append Log File)

The .logappend command appends a copy of the events and commands from the Debugger Command window to the specified log file.

.logappend [/u] [FileName]



Writes the log file in Unicode format. If you omit this parameter, the debugger writes the log file in ASCII (ANSI) format.

Note   When you are appending to an existing log file, you should use the /u parameter only if you created the log file by using the /u option. Otherwise, your log file will contain ASCII and Unicode characters, which might make it more difficult to read.

Specifies the name of the log file. You can specify a full path or only the file name. If the file name contains spaces, enclose FileName in quotation marks. If you do not specify the path, the debugger uses the current directory. If you omit FileName, the debugger names the file Dbgeng.log.



User mode, kernel mode


Live, crash dump





If you already have a log file open when you run the .logappend command, the debugger closes the log file. If you specify the name of a file that already exists, the debugger appends new information to the file. If the file does not exist, the debugger creates it.
