3. Attach diagnostic logs

Xpiks logs diagnostic information while it works so this information can help later to fix an issue if there will be any. This information usually is crucial to include when you report a bug. Please find these diagnostic logs and attach them.

In order to find the logs through Xpiks, go to Tools -> Advanced -> Show logs.

Each logfile has a date and a time in the name of file so it helps to select a logfile from the session when you experienced issues with Xpiks. It might help to sort files by date. If you’re not sure which logs to choose, get few of them.

  • on Windows they should be at %AppData%/Roaming/Xpiks/ directory
