ServeToMe keeps a log file when it runs. This log file is primarily for debugging purposes — if you're having issues with particular files or unexplained errors performing specific actions then the best action is often to email the log file to us so that we can identify the problem and respond with advice or a fix for the problem.
You can access the log file by selecting "Show log file in Finder" (Mac) or "Reveal log file in Explorer" (Windows) from the "Advanced Options" submenu in the ServeToMe menu.

You can find the ServeToMe menu when ServeToMe is running by:
In some cases, you may be unable to access the ServeToMe menu. In these cases, you can access the log file directly:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\ProjectsWithLove\ServeToMe
If you'd like us to help you investigate the cause of any problem you're experiencing, just attach the file that this reveals to an email to support (at this domain) along with a description of the problem, the time that the problem occurred and the file you were trying to play so we can locate the problem within the log file.
NOTE: the ServeToMe log file can grow fairly large in some circumstances. You might want to compress it (ZIP, RAR, 7z, BZ2, etc) before attaching it to the email.
If you wish to disable the log file, then you can do this on the Mac by opening a Terminal window (the Terminal app should be in /Applications/Utilities) and type the following:
On Windows, reveal the log file (as shown in the Finding the ServeToMe log file section) but instead of using the log file, instead open the "ServeToMe.conf" file in the same folder as the log file (open this file in any text editor, like Notepad).
Once the "ServeToMe.conf" file is open, you should then quit ServeToMe and say "Yes" when asked if you want to "Stop the ServeToMe server before quitting". This is important since the ServeToMe-Service.exe (which edits the "ServeToMe.conf" file itself) should not be running when we make changed. With ServeToMe quit and the service stopped, change the following line:
Save the changes to the "ServeToMe.conf" file and restart ServeToMe. Logging will now be disabled.
