How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Open multiple files from command line with cmtrace

What the description says. I'd love to open multiple files with CMTrace so it can more easily be integrated with 3rd party utilities!

        Actually you *can* open multiple files from the command line; simply enclose each file name in double quotes with a space between, for example:
        cmtrace "ccmsetup.log" "client.msi.log"
        cmtrace "c:\windows\ccmsetup\logs\ccmsetup.log" "c:\windows\ccm\logs\LocationServices.log"

        Great idea! Would make our troubleshooting a bit easier. Please be so kind and implement it.

        Multiple logs can be opened within CMTrace. You just have to use the Open File option once CMTrace is already running.

        I use ConfigMgr LogFile Opener 1.1.0 from msitproblog.com.
        Works quite decent when opening multiply files. Have some issues if the computer is over a slow wan. I guess the timing isn't quite right.
