The best way to use this is to install the Cordova CLI, create a project, add the windows platform, and run the app:

cordova create test
cordova platform add windows
cordova run windows

Getting logs from Windows Store applications

You can get your JavaScript logs as well as Windows logs related to your Windows Store application by running the following command from your app directory:


In most cases, this command requires administrator privileges. However, if you want to gather logs without admin privileges, you may need to manually enable logging channel via Event Viewer:

Start -> Run -> eventvwr
View -> Show Analytic and Debug Logs
Applications and Services Logs -> Microsoft -> Windows -> AppHost -> AppTracing -> Enable Log

Please note that the log command is supported only for Windows Store applications and cannot get logs from Windows Phone application.
