I've been working in IIS 7 for over a year and I've never been able to find the logs of unhandled ASP.NET exceptions.

In IIS 6, it was Computer Management>System Tools>Event Viewer>Application. Where is it in IIS 7?

UPDATE Here is the list I get in event viewer. Most are empty and the rest do not contain any ASP.NET errors. After some digging I saw in the Microsoft folder there was Windows > Application Server-Applications. Inside that was Admin and Operational but these both indicated that they were disabled. Are these the logs I am looking for? If I enable them, will they start logging ASP.NET unhandled exceptions?

Should still be in the Application event log, I think?

If you're asking about the location of that log through the GUI: Eventvwr.exe or Server Manager -> Diagnostics -> Event Viewer -> Windows Logs -> Application

  • "Windows Logs" is the bit you're looking for. – TristanK May 7 '11 at 5:06
