HELP: Logging SimConnect

To get a SimConnect LOG

Create a file containing these lines:

file=path to logfile\SimConnect%01u.Log

where you need to replace the "path to logfile" by your particular path where you want to store the log file,

and save this file as Simconnect.ini in your
   - for FSX: My Documents\Flight Simulator X files folder (or, for a non-English Windows or non-English FSX, the folder where FSX stores and loads your saved Flights and Plans).
   - for P3D: <USER>\Documents\Prepar3D v? Files folder (replacing '?' with the P3D version number
   - for MSFS Steam installed versions : <USER>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft Flight Simulator folder
  - for MSFS MS Store and boxed versions: this will be in one of two places, either
    or             <USER>\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache
depending on where your UserCfg.opt file is located and your FLT files are saved.

  (where <USER> indicates your top level windows home folder)

The Log will be found, after or even during your sin session, in the  specified location.

With the options as shown you will get a file "SimConnect1.Log" first, then on the next session "SimConnect2.Log" and so on, with it cycling to 0 after 9, overwriting previous copies.

If you run the sim in Windowed mode you can, if you wish, set "console=yes" to see a real-time display of what is going on.
