Description of problem:
Virt-viewer debug using --spice-debug in the registry is not getting enough debug information in Windows Event Viewer. In bug https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=960709, I specifically state and post debug information from the Windows Event Viewer. If I then have to run GDB to get a bt, there is not enough logging for debugging.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEV-M 3.2 (si14)
spice-client-msi-3.2-10 (mingw-virt-viewer 0.5.3-25).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. See above and below.
Need to run GDB
Spice debug logs should have the debug information needed.
To enable debugging and save the debug log in Windows Event Viewer for SPICE:
In HK_Current_User\Software\spice-space.org\spicex\client, at the end add
Add a registry key in "HK_Local_Machine\\SYSTEM\\CurrentControlSet\\Services\\EventLog\\Application\\" called VirtViewer
When you go to the Windows logs -> Filter current log -> Event sources, you will have a VirtViewer "Key" that you added.
Then you can Save the filtered logfile into a text file and you are done.
Windows Event Viewer is not meant for debugging.
If you want to enable debugging on windows, there is debug-helper.
closing based on comment #1 and the fact that need-info is open for 2 months now
