MOSS log readers won't open log file?


  • I'm trying to view one of the C:\...\12hive\logs\12.log files. I've downloaded SharepointLogViewer.exe and SharepointLogReader.exe (and a couple others), and tried to open the 12.log file in them. SharePoint Log Reader v2.0 gives me an hourglass for around 10 sec and then nothing, no data displayed, displaying 0/0 items. SharePoint LogViewer gives me the silverlight hourglass for a second and then nothing. The file is 800KB, with plenty of data in it. not sure why it's coming up blank.

    Tried opening it through the File > Open buttons and through drag and drop. I've also wondered if it was a permissions issue, so I copied the 12.log to my desktop and tried to open from there, same result.

    Any suggestions? Thanks.
