Windows log location

Postby basecase » Fri Jun 10, 2016 5:24 am

I cannot seem to find the log for the transmission-qt 2.92 windows client. I do not see anything in the event viewer referencing transmission. Thanks

I believe Qt uses a Message Log which shouldn't be too hard to find, but is only available at runtime. Look through those menu thingies at the top of the screen (sorry, not a Windows person). When you do find it, note the location of the settings.json file that Transmission is loading and that might help with your other issues.

Also, read the following:

You are quite the funny person x190. The "Message log" toggle button is absent from the linux version of transmission-qt as well. I will just have to play around with the qt source and try to get it to work. Thanks for your super informative reply.

If anybody else needs the log for testing purposes. The unofficial transmission-qt port from rberber at https://sourceforge.net/projects/trqtw does include the message log menu item.
