The server (Windows)

How do I find the Windows event log?

If the server doesn't start, or you experience strange errors that cannot be debugged using the regular server log, Windows' event log is the answer. I recommend that you start the server and provoke the error right before opening the event log, so that the exception comes to the top of the log, and is easy to find. To open the event log, see Microsoft's simple step by step guide here.
