How To: Generate a pylon Log File On macOS#

To generate pylon log files on macOS:

  1. Open (accessible under /Applications/Utilities).
  2. Start the pylon Viewer with the following command using the command line in the

    /Library/Frameworks/pylon.framework/Versions/Current/Resources/Tools/pylon-start-with-logging /Applications/pylon\


    pylon-start-with-logging and pylon could be located somewhere else, when the default installation path wasn't used at installation.


    The slash in "/Applications/pylon" is important to be able to use filenames that include the space character at the command line.

  3. Reproduce the problem (e.g., if no camera is displayed in the Viewer, press the refresh button).

  4. Close the pylon Viewer.
    A text document with the log file opens.
