  • Can you open it with the snooper tool from the OCS 2007 Resourcekit

  • I guess it are only TEXT files?

    The Administration guide for Update Server gives you some details about the logs but notting about a tool to view the logs

    So try with Notepad?

    the format is not a TXT.


    I tried to renamed the cfg1  to .txt and opened it with notepad, but no luck.

  • How to convert UCPhone Tanjay files from CeLog (.clg) format into text (.txt) format.


    The Readlog tool is a command-line tool that converts the kernel tracker output, which is generated in CeLog (.clg) format, into text (.txt) format.


    See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa924465.aspx for available options.


    To access the readlog.exe tool you need to install Windows Embedded CE 6.0 Tesk Kit (CETK) from http://www.microsoft.com/downloadS/details.aspx?FamilyID=fe5ca9a9-43d9-46d7-bcbe-9fff174acaf5&displaylang=en.


    After installation the readlog.exe tool can be found in C:\WINCE600\PUBLIC\COMMON\OAK\BIN\I386.


    Basic usage to view CeLog events

    1. From a command window, navigate to the flat release directory.

    2. At the command prompt, type Readlog celog.clg output.txt

    This causes Readlog to convert the binary log file celog.clg to a text file called output.txt.

    3. From a text editor such as Notepad or Wordpad, open output.txt.

    If the output file is very large, you may want to use a text editor that processes large files faster.
