|Title||We don't tell people to use the Windows event log|
|Assigned user||Richard Brooksby|
|Description||TeamTrack's error reporting to the API is very poor, and often we can't tell what went wrong. It tends to write some information to the Windows event log, but we don't tell people to look there.|
|Analysis||We should tell people about TeamTrack's poor error handling and suggest that they enlarge their event log (or set it to "overwrite as needed" perhaps) when they install.|
We should tell people to look at the event log when the replicator reports certain errors, to find out what's going wrong.
We should update the code to tell them to look at the event log as well, as part of the error message written to our log, whenever the TeamShare API throws an vague error.
