How to View and Update Global Debugger Settings
To view debugger settings for startup entries, run the following command.
For more information about viewing entries, see the section titled "How to Interpret BCDEdit Output" earlier in this tutorial.
To change debugger settings for a startup entry, run the following command.
bcdedit /dbgsettings DebugType [debugport:Port] [baudrate:Baud] [channel:Channel] [targetname:TargetName]
Replace the parameters with your custom settings, as described in the following list:
- DebugType Specifies the type of debugger. DebugType can be SERIAL, 1394, or USB. The remaining options depend on the debugger type selected.
- Port For SERIAL debugging, specifies the serial port to use as the debugging port.
- Baud For SERIAL debugging, specifies the baud rate to be used for debugging.
- Channel For 1394 debugging, specifies the 1394 channel to be used for debugging.
- Target Name For USB debugging, specifies the USB target name to be used for debugging.
For example, the following command sets the global debugger settings to SERIAL debugging over com1 at 115,200 baud.
bcdedit /dbgsettings serial debugport:1 baudrate:115200
The following command sets the global debugger settings to 1394 debugging using channel 23.
bcdedit /dbgsettings 1394 CHANNEL:32
The following command sets the global debugger settings to USB debugging using target name debugging.
bcdedit /dbgsettings USB targetname:debugging
