How to customize settings for ViewX and Virtual ViewX log files

When troubleshooting ViewX or Virtual ViewX issues, sometimes it is necessary to customize the size and number of log files generated. Please note this customization involves editing the machineā€™s registry, which should be done with care. The configuration mentioned below needs to be done in the client machine, where ViewX is running.
To change the log file settings:
  1. Access and Run a Registry Editor.
  2. Use the Registry Editor to locate the registry settings at the relevant:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Schneider Electric\ClearSCADA\ViewX

Registry keys

The most important fields, highlighted above, are:
LogFileBase - Defines the folder that will contain the log files and the filename prefix for the files. The prefix is part of the name of the files (it cannot contain certain characters, see your operating system documentation for more details).
LogMaxFiles - Enter the maximum amount of log files permitted for each set of log files.
LogMaxSize - Enter the largest size of a log file. The size is in kilobytes.
After setting the new values, new ViewX log files will follow those parameters.
