SQL Prompt 10

Finding the SQL Prompt 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.

To find the log files for the current session, open the SQL Prompt menu, click Help and then click Locate Log Files:

Log file locations

By default the log files are stored in:

  • %LOCALAPPDATA%\Red Gate\Logs\SQL Prompt 10 (Windows Vista, Windows 2008 and later)
  • %UserProfile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Red Gate\SQL Prompt 10 (Windows XP and Windows 2003)

Sending log files to Redgate support

If asked by Redgate support to send your log files, there is a menu item called Zip Log Files that can be used to collate all of the log files into a single zip file.

Verbose logging

If you're troubleshooting a problem, you can turn on verbose logging to see more information in the log files.

To do this, under SQL Prompt > Help, click Enable Verbose Logging.

Verbose logging writes more information to disk and produces larger log files. If you're not troubleshooting a problem, we recommend you disable verbose logging.
