Installation log files

Note that you might need to give read permission to all users to the Install.GS folder to be able to compress the log files. See how to give read permission to folders on macOS.

Locations of older BIMcloud and BIM Server logs


Would it be possible to explain a little bit how to read these logs?


I am investigating why a user got kicked from a project and don't really know where to look 🙂

Hello Mathieu,

BIMcloud logs are not audit logs, but great help for our development team to be able to investigate any unexpected behaviours within our program.

If a user was kicked out, it is very likely that someone else forced them to leave the project. Else, I suggest to collect a Support Package from this user and send it to your local support - I suspect that the issue will be visible from the Archicad FastLoggers, but it's even encrypted and requires developers to understand.





Thanks a lot for your quick answer 🙂


Will do then!
