This policy setting allows you to configure the level of detail recorded by event logging for the Applications preference extension and to turn on tracing for the Applications extension. Logging and tracing provide diagnostic information for troubleshooting. If you enable this policy setting you can configure event logging and turn on tracing for the Applications extension for client computers. If you disable or do not configure this policy setting by default event logging for this extension includes only warnings and errors and tracing for this extension is turned off. Notes:1. User Configuration tracing: To perform tracing for items in this preference extension listed under User Configuration you must provide a path in the “User trace” box to the location where a user trace file can be created on the client computer and you must turn on the “Tracing” option. If there are no preference items under User Configuration in this extension no user trace file is created. 2. Computer Configuration tracing: This preference extension is available under User Configuration only so computer configuration tracing is not applicable. 3. Group Policy Modeling query tracing: To perform tracing for items in this preference extension when you perform a Group Policy Modeling query you must provide a path in the “Planning trace” box to the location where a planning trace file can be created on the computer where you run modeling and you must turn on the “Tracing” option. If you are not performing Group Policy Modeling or there are no preference items in this extension no planning trace file is created.
