There are times when experts at IDHHB may request that you email a Goddrun.log file to help solve a problem you having with running an orb. This will be infrequent since the file is only useful in solving a limited range of problems. You should paste the content of the file into your normal email program and send it to the email address of the requestor.
The steps for this procedure are:
Use Windows Explorer to find the GODDRUN.LOG file in the folder for the orb.
1) Place the cursor on the Windows Start button located on the left side of the bar at the bottom of your screen (Figure 1).
Figure 1 - Windows Start button.
2) Click the Start button once with the right mouse button to display a small menu shown in Figure 2. Place the cursor on Open Windows Explorer and click once with the left mouse button.
Figure 2 - Right click menu.
3) Windows Explorer opens (Figure 3). Move the left vertical scroll bar by placing the cursor on it, and holding down the left mouse button while moving the mouse up or down. Move the left scroll bar so that you see the C: label for your hard drive under the heading Computer in the left pane of the window.
Figure 3 - Windows Explorer.
4) Place the cursor on the name of your C: drive and click it once with the left mouse button. The right pane now displays the names of all the files and folders stored on your hard drive. Navigate to the goddgames folder by moving the right vertical scroll bar with your mouse (Figure 4).

5) Place the cursor on the goddgames folder and quickly click it twice with the left mouse button. The folder opens to show you its contents. Move the right vertical scroll bar until you see the name of the orb folder, for example Addiction (Figure 5).

6) Open the orb folder by quickly clicking it twice with the left mouse button. You will now see the contents of the file. Use the right vertical scroll bar to move files names up and down until you see the file labelled GODDRUN.LOG (Figure 6).

NOTE The properties of your folders may be set so that you cannot see the .LOG portion of the file name. This is called the file name's extension. If you cannot see the extension continue with step 7, otherwise go to step 1 of: Open and Copy the GODDRUN.LOG File.
7) Figure 7 shows the names of the files when the properties of your folder are not set to show common file extensions.

8) You need to change your folder options so that file extensions such as .LOG are displayed with the file name and you can be certain that you have found the correct file. Left click on Tools located on a horizontal menu near the top of the Explorer window. A small menu pops up beneath it (Figure 8). Place the cursor on Folder options...

9) Left click Folder options in the Tools menu, shown in Figure 8. A Folder Options window opens. Choose the View tab by left clicking on it (Figure 9).

Open the GODDRUN.LOG file in Notepad and copy all its text contents using the following steps.
