If you encounter an error in the program, please read this section of the Knowledge Base, perhaps you will find the answer to the question. If you have not found a solution, switch the DICOM Viewer log level mode to the Debug mode.
To do this, select the "Options" - "Settings" menu. In the General tab, switch the Log level to Debug mode.
If you changed the path to the log file, or do not know its location, you can see it in this Settings window. You can also change the location of the log file by clicking the button that is circled in purple in the screenshot below.
When you contact Technical Support, please attach a log file and a DUMP file after reinitializing the error so that the error is written to the log file and we can analyze it.
The log file is standardly called "dcmviewer.log", you can change the name of the log file in the "Settings" window from the screenshot above.
The dump file uses in the name the date when the Viewer crashed and the program version. For example, "200619072228UTC22.214.171.12498.dmp".
The default locations for the log file and the DUMP file are:
C:\Users\USER\AppData\Local\Inobitec\Inobitec DICOM Viewer VERSION\Logs - for the log file.
C:\Users\USER\AppData\Local\Inobitec\Inobitec DICOM Viewer VERSION\Dumps - for the DUMP file.
