Long ago, on an older machine, with an older form of ArcGIS Desktop (10.4), I was able to make the console window appear upon startup for all local ArcGIS Desktop applications (ArcMap, Catalog, etc). It does not matter which language or IDE used, if debugging or not. I could see my logs immediately.
Now on a newer machine, with 10.5, I cannot figure this out. I would like to set Desktop10.5 so that my console window appears upon startup for my desktop applications.
(See the image as the example, in ArcMap, of what I'm trying to accomplish.)
I've searched around in:
C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.5\bin
I'm just not finding what I'm looking for, or any documentation for this. Thank you!
