Thanks for the information but I don't seem to be able to get it to work.
When I run iexplore.exe or firefox.exe from the dos prompt it starts the
program but immediately returns and gives me the prompt again and no output.
If I try it in a cygwin shell it doesn't return control to the shell until I
close the window but it doesn't give me any logging output to the console
either, even when it crashes.

I still have the settings enabled for logging in the client. Am I doing
anything wrong?
