Article Last Updated

This article applies to:

Is Quizmaker '09 crashing or performing erratically? You should be able to fix it by reinstalling Quizmaker and its supporting software. If it persists, send us the Quizmaker error logs from your computer for review. Here's how:

Note: Microsoft .NET Framework 4 (or later) must be installed to perform this logging process.

  1. Download and extract this zip file on your computer.
  2. If you're using Windows Vista/7/8, right-click the QMCrashLog.bat file and select Run as administrator. If you're using Windows XP, double-click QMCrashLog.bat. A command window will open and close, and Quizmaker will launch a few seconds later.
  3. Reproduce the problematic behavior in Quizmaker, then close Quizmaker.
  4. Wait 60 seconds to allow logging to complete, then proceed to the next step.
  5. From the zip file downloaded in step 1, locate the QMLogZip.bat file. If you're using Windows Vista/7/8, right-click it and select Run as administrator. If you're using Windows XP, double-click it. A command window will open and create a zip file (called ArticulateLogFiles.zip) that contains several error logs on your desktop. (These logs can be large, so it may take a few minutes to complete.)
  6. Click here to upload ArticulateLogFiles.zip to us.

We'll review your log files and follow-up with you when the investigation is complete.
