Mystery log files!?

Imagine you get an error somewhere at your Smart Client application (Administrator, Client, Workflows, TileService, SmartClient Service or the MapService) and you don’t know how the error occurred.

If you have followed step 20 at the Installation Guide of the GeoMedia Smart Client ( => modify the security settings for the NetworkService), you will get a few log files, where the reason for your error is written. So there are five log files on the server side
