TraceEvents to WIndbg

edited July 2020 in WINDBG


i have started new with the windows driver development (KMDF) and can't get anywhere.

Currently I use TraceEvents for debug output.
To see this in Windbg I use traceview on the target computer (with pdb file) and set "WinDbg" = "True" under "Log Session Parameter Options".

This I would like to do with a bat script.

What did not work :
"tarcelog -start -guid -rt -kd"
"tracewier -process -pdb -rt -kd "
"tracewier -process -p -rt -kd "
"logman start TraceSession -ets -mode KernelFilter -bs 3"

Would anyone have any advice for me what else I can try or where my mistake lies?
