Send log file

If Pirform is running on your computer, then you can get it to send your log files over automatically. If it's not running then you will need to download our Support Tool and then attach the log file to an email. Please follow the relevant section below to send us your log file.

Pirform is running

If Pirform runs on the computer, you can send your log files directly from the Home Screen by right-clicking over the status bar at the bottom and selecting Send log file to Pirform Support:

Alternatively, you can send the log file from Pirform Options. To do that, click File and then Pirform Options and go to the Support section and click Send Log File:

If Pirform was not able to connect to the internet to send the error report (such as when your firewall is preventing Pirform from accessing the internet) then please follow the instructions in the next section to send us your log file.
