Windows Zero Configuration (WZC) is the Windows service that automatically configures 802.11 wireless network devices. Adapter manufacturers and NDIS miniport developers for those adapters may find additional diagnostic information from the WZC service helpful.
This article describes how to capture a very verbose log (one that is set to maximum output) from WZC.
To use the additional tracing capabilities that are built into WZC, install the checked build of Wzcsvc.dll on the test system. The trace will be written out to a log file on disk. Therefore, you do not have to hook up a Kernel debugger (for example, WinDbg) or install the whole checked build of the operating system.
If you are not using a complete checked build of the OS, you must obtain a copy of the binary Wzcsvc.dll from a system that is using a complete checked build of the OS.
Note To obtain the checked build on CD, you can subscribe to the Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN). For more information about subscriptions, visit the following Web site:
