Log files capture certain information about how the Identity Manager Desktop application is running. Log files for the Identity Manager Desktop application and its components are saved in the %LOCALAPPDATA%\VMware\Identity Manager Desktop folder. The ten most recent log files are saved.

Log files for the installer are saved in the %TEMP% folder. These log files are named vmmsi.log-timestamp and vminst.log-timestamp.

By default, only errors are logged. For troubleshooting, it might be necessary to change the log level settings in the Windows registry. Your system administrator can help you modify the log file output.
