Office logs?

Dejan_MaksimovicDejan_Maksimovic Member - All Emails Posts: 303

I'm debugging our beta driver, and came up with some user mode issues related to office.
Anyone know where installed office keeps a log of "things"?
What specifically happens is that Word starts Office Repair when our driver is loaded, but even with ProcMon output I cannot tell what could be the problem, so I need to find logs, if any, that Word/Office made during that time.
Googling gave me nothing, just the logs that Office installation makes, which is not what I need here :(
The driver is too complex to allow for any "smaller and smaller subset" test.

Not directly NTFSD/NTDEV related, but I reckon many here have had the need for the same...

    My usual technique to find logs involves running procmon.....

    The only .log/.etl I can see in ProcMon logs is the one from
    Setup.exe. That is too late... without our driver, setup.exe is not
    even started.
