This tab controls the error reporting features of the printer driver, including disabling the display of any error dialogs, customizing the location of any error log files created and enabling advanced debugging options.

Enabling the Debugging Options may slow down the printing process considerably.

Error Display

Choose how to display error messages.

Standard Message Boxes - standard message dialog box that requires you to dismiss them. This is the default.

Timed Message Boxes - similar to standard message dialogs, these message boxes automatically that disappear after 5 seconds

None - no error messages are displayed at all.

Error Log

Log All Errors

Enable this check box to activate error logging. A log file is only created if errors occur during the printing process.

When no path is entered, all log files are created in the Documents folder of the %USERPROFILE% directory for the logged in user, or the user the printing process is currently running under. If you are running Windows 7 or Windows Vista, this is a folder named Documents. On Windows XP and earlier, this folder is called My Documents.

The directory name or a full path to custom log file name can be used to name the log file. A custom naming sequence is imposed on all logging files so that every job will create its own unique log file. The log file name always includes the name of the printer that printed the job. If you have renamed the printer to a custom name, or are using a copy of the printer with a different name, that name is used to create the log file names. The JobID from the Save tab is also used to create a unique filename.

The custom naming is as follows:

 

The default logging settings:

Will create log files named similar to the following, the bolded numbers will change for each print job:

%USERPROFILE%\Documents\PNRAS11[Raster Image Printer 11.0,6-50].log

 

 

Customizing the output folder for the log file as shown:

Will create log files in the folder C:\Logs\ and named similar to the following; the bolded numbers will change for each print job:

C:\Logs\PNRAS11[Raster Image Printer 11.0,7-51].log

 

 

Customizing the name and location of the log file as shown:

Will create log files with a base name of TestRun and located in the folder C:\Logs; the bolded numbers will change for each print job:

C:\Logs\TestRun[Raster Image Printer 11.0,8-53].log

Browse

Use this button to set the folder and name of the log file by browsing to an existing log file on your computer.

View Log

Click this button to open the folder where the log files are being saved.

Debugging Options

Create trace files

Enable this check box to create detailed trace files for debugging purposes. The trace files are always created in the Windows temp folder (%TEMP%) for the currently logged in user or the user the printing process is currently running under. The tracing files follow the same naming sequence as the log files but the base name and location cannot be changed.

Create support files

Enable this check box to create a support file that can be sent to PEERNET support for further analysis. These files can be very large and should only be sent upon request by a PEERNET support technician. The trace files are always created in the Windows temp folder (%TEMP%) for the currently logged in user or the user the printing process is currently running under. The tracing files follow the same naming sequence as the log files but the base name and location cannot be changed.
