It's the craziest thing...  I changed from the default location to a network drive, and think that worked for a while, but then stopped.  Even changing it back to the default location doesn't help.  Log display screen says "There are no values to show" for SystemEvents.txt only, but does correctly show TaskEvents.txt and AuditEvents.txt located in the same directory, either the default or my network drive. 

It was working just fine and then one day (a couple of week ago, I'd say), poof... no more SystemEvents.txt displaying even though I can manually read it in Windows Explorer. Doesn't matter if I navigate with the folders or cut & paste the full path directly, same result.

Note, there's both AutoMate10SystemEvents.txt and an older, smaller AutoMate10SystemEvents.txt~ file present at times, which I presume is some way of it appending to the existing log when a new task starts?

I figured somehow I just fat-fingered something, but I've gotten to the point where I think it just doesn't work after you change it to another location or something.  What can I do to reset?

Hello Jeff,

I was able to reproduce the issue when I used a Mapped drive. It worked fine when using the full UNC path. May you please let us know how you went about changing the location of  the logs?
