  2.  On the LCS, launch Debug View
  3.  In debug view, go to the Capture menu>>Capture Global Win32
  4. On the LCS status page, select Logging in the left column.
  5. Set the Severity Level to All, and enter -1 in the Specific Student. 
  6. Click Submit Query.
  7. Debug view will now capture all LCS events.
  8. Once you have gathered enough data, about 2-3 minutes, save the debug view log and send it to support@lanschool.com
