Tracing has been moved to config files. They become more extended, you can set reporting level, folders etc. You need to enable log for specific product:

  1. c:\Program Files (x86)\Teklynx\Label Archive Client\NLog.config
  2. c:\Program Files (x86)\Teklynx\Label Archive Server\NLog.config
  3. c:\Program Files (x86)\Teklynx\LABELNET WebAdmin\NLog.config
  4. c:\Program Files (x86)\Teklynx\LABELNET WebSite\NLog.config
  5. c:\Program Files (x86)\Teklynx\TkxSvrClients\NLog.config
  6. c:\Program Files (x86)\Teklynx\TkxSvrServers\NLog.config

*For example for LAS you need to find the line <logger name=”TkxArv.*” writeTo=”file” minlevel=”Off” /> and change “Off” to reference to one of the following levels: Trace,Debug,Info,Warn,Error,Fatal (usually Trace is appropriate)

Log file will be located under C:\ProgramData\Teklynx\[product]\Logs by default. This can be modified to consolidate trace files to one location.
