WinDbg - Logger.exe Won't Run Standalone

Ian French 0 Reputation points

Hi, I have been trying to run logger.exe as described here: Using Logger.exe - Windows drivers | Microsoft Learn but I cannot get the program to run. Double-clicking the binary from explorer shows a help message window, and then exits.

Trying to run the program from the command line with my intended program also fails:

.\logger.exe C:\Windows\Users\user\program.exe

This fails with a few different messages:


Followed by this error:


It also seems that logger.exe is not compatible with the new WinDbgX?

I am trying to create a debugging log for my program, as verbose as possible, similar to using ltrace and strace on Linux.

Is there a better way to do this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
