Dear WL Support,

Is it possible to access the WL protocol automatically via some interface?
e.g if an error occurs while writing to the database, we would like to
access this information via our software.

You can enable logging in Wealth-Lab by following the procedure below. However, most extensions don't honor the log so you won't find all errors there.

0. Enable hidden file/folder visibility.

1. Shut down Wealth-Lab

2. In the ..\Data\Logs folder, if it exists, purge wld.txt. (See User Guide: Data > Where Data is Stored).

3. In the WLD installation folder, usually C:\Program Files\MS123\Wealth-Lab Developer 6 (or \Fidelity Investments\Wealth-Lab Pro 6), open WealthLabDev.exe.config (or WealthLabPro.exe.config) with a text editor. About 2/3rd's the way down, look for this section:

Please log in to see this code.

4. Change "level value" to <level value="All" />

5. Change this line:

Please log in to see this code.

This way:

Please log in to see this code.

6. Save and close WealthLabDev.exe.config (or WealthLabPro.exe.config)

7. When the problem occurs, close Wealth-Lab and attach the wld.txt (wlp.txt) file from the ..\Data\Logs folder

8. Important!
When finished troubleshooting, repeat steps 3 thru 5, but change "level value" to < level value="Off">
Failure to do this could contribute to sluggish Wealth-Lab operation.
