The debug log file is one of the best tools for troubleshooting issues in a
problematic Zan Image Printer configuration. The debug log file is a detailed
report of what Zan Image Printer does during execution and contains
most of the information which we consider useful. Each line in the debug log file is formatted as follows:
If you need to submit the debug log file, you may want to verify that it does
not contain sensitive data (passwords are not written to log file). Please note that Zan Image Printer will always
append new log output to the existing log file. If the log file gets too
large, it can be difficult to open and difficult to interpret. Therefore,
you should generally first rename the existing log file or specify a
different log file name before you start collecting debug messages.
Use the following steps to enable and disable debug logging:
1. Click the Program Information button on the
About or Registration tab:
2. After the Program Information dialog opens, double click
the Debug Logging row within the list:
3. The Debug Logging dialog will open:
Within this dialog, use the following steps to enable debug logging:
a. Click to check the Enable debug logging check box if it is not checked.
b. Once debug logging is enabled, you can specify the full path
(including the file name) of the log file you would like debugging
messages written to (for example, c:\zanlog\log.txt).
c. Click OK to close the dialog.
You can click the Open containing folder for log file button to open the folder
containing the log file in Windows Explorer.
You will need to specify a debug log file, when reporting bugs to us by Email.
However, if debug logging is enabled and the Log file field is left blank, Zan Image Printer
will write the debug messages using the Win32 OutputDebugString function,
which DebugView can
monitor. This is useful if you are troubleshooting on your own, or if you invite us to help troubleshoot your problem
via remote access.
4. Print to Zan Image Printer to start collecting debug messages into
the specified log file.
5. Compress the captured log file using the ZIP or RAR format and Email it to us
at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can investigate your problem.
6. After you are done collecting diagnostics, you should disable debug logging. This
will ensure that Zan Image Printer runs at optimal speed.
To disable debug logging, uncheck the Enable debug logging check box.
It does not matter if the log file is specified.
If the Program Information dialog has been hidden, you can use the command line to
enable and disable debug logging:
1. Open a command prompt and go to the directory where Zan Image Printer is
installed (by default C:\Program Files\zvprt50).
2. To enable debug logging, run:

Printer GPD File
Zan Image Printer is Microsoft Unidrv (Universal printer driver / Unidriver) based.
Unidrv allows the creation of a printer-specific minidriver in the form of a
GPD (Generic Printer Description) file. A GPD file is a text-based file
that contains information about the printer features (supported paper size,
dpi, orientation, color, and so on) that Unidrv will present in the user interface to
allow the user to configure the printer.
You can open this file by double clicking it.
Physical Memory Usage
Displays the physical memory usage (used physical memory / total physical memory).
