Computer and IT knowledge - things to know
To debug Wired AutoConfig (WAC) messages in Windows, you can follow these steps:
1. Open the Event Viewer: Press the Windows key, type "Event Viewer," and select the "Event Viewer" application.
2. In the Event Viewer, navigate to "Applications and Services Logs" -> "Microsoft" -> "Windows" -> "Wired-AutoConfig."
3. In the "Wired-AutoConfig" section, you will find logs related to the Wired AutoConfig service.
4. Look for events with the Event ID 5007. These events correspond to WAC messages and can provide information about any issues or errors encountered by the service.
5. Click on an event to view its details. The event's description will contain information about the error message and any associated details that can help diagnose the problem.
6. Pay attention to the specific error messages, error codes, and other details mentioned in the event description. These can provide clues about the root cause of the issue.
Additionally, you can enable additional logging for Wired AutoConfig to gather more detailed information. To enable verbose logging for WAC, you can modify the registry settings by following these steps:
1. Press the Windows key, type "regedit," and select the "Registry Editor" application.
2. In the Registry Editor, navigate to the following location:
3. Create a new DWORD (32-bit) value named "EventLogLevel" if it doesn't already exist.
4. Set the value of "EventLogLevel" to 0xFFFFFFFF (hexadecimal) to enable verbose logging.
5. Restart your computer to apply the changes.
After enabling verbose logging, check the Event Viewer again for updated logs with more detailed information about the Wired AutoConfig service.
Remember to be cautious when modifying the registry. Incorrect changes to the registry can cause system instability, so it's always a good practice to create a backup or restore point before making any modifications.
