Debug Mode

Debug mode in WinSQL is very useful in finding error messages that are normally hidden from users during normal execution. When WinSQL is run in debug mode it creates a file called "debug.log". This file may contain additional information/error messages that are generated during execution.

Running WinSQL in debug mode
There are two ways:

  • If you are using version 5.0 or above, click on the "Start" button, select Programs/Synametrics Technologies/WinSQL Debug Mode

  • Pass a -g parameter to WinSQL.exe from command line. Refer to the image below (click to enlarge).

The title bar of program changes when running in debug mode. Refer to the image below.

Location of Debug.log file
In version 5.0 or older, this file is created in the same folder where WinSQL.exe is installed. By default, this folder is c:\Program Files\Synametrics Technologies\WinSQL

In version 5.5 or above, this file is created in the user's Application Data folder. For example:
C:\Documents and Settings\YourUserName\Application Data\WinSQL.

A quick way to open this folder is by clicking File/Open Data Folder on the main menu.
