.NET Reflector 6

Log files for .NET Reflector Pro

The information on this page applies to .NET Reflector Pro only. .NET Reflector does not create log files.

Log files collect information about the application while you are using it. These files are useful to us if you have encountered a problem.

Enabling logging

In .NET Reflector Pro's default state, very little information is recorded in the log. To record more information:

Using an XML editor, open

%USERSPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Red Gate\.NET Reflector 6\LoggingConfiguration.xml

Change the value for the recording level to 'WARN' for both the <root> and <logger> nodes, as in the example below:

  <root>
    <level value="WARN" />
    <appender-ref ref="DefaultRGFile" />   
  </root>
    
  <logger name="RedGate.Reflector.Addin">
    <level value="WARN"/>
  </logger>

Opening the log file

Log files are stored in:

%USERSPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Red Gate\.NET Reflector 6\

If the log files in this directory are all empty, you may need to increase the recording level in LoggingConfiguration.xml to 'ERROR' or 'FATAL', following the instructions above.
