1. Enable the logging feature

To enable the logging feature in the ScreenCloud Player app for macOS do the following:

  1. While the app is running, right-click on the screen and choose "Toggle Setting Menu".
  2. In the setting menu, you will then need to click on the Version number 10 times to enable developer mode. The number you need to click on should look something like 2.7.6 or whichever number version of the app you are using. Specifically, click on the number and not any other text. Once you do this you will see a message stating "You're a developer now" and there will be more options in the settings. 
  3. Of the new options that appear, enable "Write log to file".

Now if an error or event occurs it will be logged in the log file.


2. Locate the log file

The log file that is created is located in your Windows system files. To locate it, do the following:

  1. Go to Finder > Applications > Utilities > and open the Console app.
  2. Under "Files" on the left, find "ScreenCloud Player", click to expand it and then Cmd-click on the "log.log file and choose "Reveal in Finder".

You will then want to send this file to our support team to assist with issue solving.
