Re: How to view the debug logs, and get exceptions in NVDAHelper

Reef Turner

In addition to building NVDA with `nvdaHelperDebugFlags` (I'd suggest with debugCRT and RTC), you can also specify `nvdaHelperLogLevel=0` for maximum logging verbosity.

These args are defined in the `sconstruct` file.

I'm trying to get exceptions in NVDAHelper, for some error I caused in one of the MSHTML vbuff backend methods. 
I see this coder in remoteLoader/loader.cpp.
#ifndef NDEBUG
I also see a logger method that does some cryptic things I don't understand. Does anyone here know how I can set the log level, and/or view the logs? How can I get a debugger attached to IE, so I can figure out what horrible thing I did that is crashing IE? I tried getting windbg to attach to iexplore but it won't do anything for some reason.
Short of that, can I generate a minidump somehow, or a full dump, when IE breaks? It doesn't seem to crash the whole browser, but just the page.
