Use trace files
October 11, 2023
After you report a problem to Kaspersky Customer Service specialists, they may ask you to generate a report with information about the operation of the premium version of Kaspersky Password Manager and send it to Kaspersky Customer Service. Customer Service specialists may also ask you to create a trace file. The trace file makes it possible to perform a step-by-step examination of the execution of application commands and determine when errors occur.
If Customer Service specialists need more detailed information about your problem, they will ask you to change the application settings in system tools on your computer. Customer Service specialists will give you all the information you need to perform these actions (step-by-step instructions, what settings should be changed, scripts, additional command line options, debugging modules, special utilities, etc.) and they will inform you of what data to provide for debugging purposes.
