Debugging Tools for Windows

Choosing the Best Logger Vehicle

Logger can operate on Microsoft Windows 98, Windows 98 Second Edition, Windows Me, Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, and Windows Vista. However, these Windows versions have different levels of support for debugging operations and also behave differently when executing code that attempts to "inject" itself into a particular process.

Windows 98, Windows 98 Second Edition, and Windows Me

The Logger vehicle to use on any Windows 9x system is logger.exe. The debuggers in the Debugging Tools for Windows package are not supported on Windows 9x.

Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, and later versions of Windows

The best vehicle to use on any NT-based operating system is CDB or WinDbg with the logexts.dll extension commands.

The Logger vehicle works as well, but using the debugger gives you the full power of the debugger along with the power of Logger.
