    Run Trace

    Ok, this is a simple question. Once you start run trace in ollydgb, how do you stop it? For the life of me I cannot figure it out. I have googled it with no results.

    google is an aid and not a replacement to any of the more common senses
    how do you stop a running exe ? never paused it ?

    you either need a breakpoint that gets hit
    or suspend the process ( terminology being pause / break depending on the debugger you use)

    in ollydbg pause / break is implemented using f12 key
    in windbg ctrl+break etc

    Thanks!
    F12 worked.
    Its not well documented, thats for sure.
    Also, there is no stop trace command under the Trace menu.
    Maybe this needs to be added.

    well i have to be a little hard and yell RTFM (you can substitute friendly inplace of F$##(*#($ ) if you so wish

    this is straight from ollydbg.hlp what more explict documentation do you need ?

    Run trace is the way to backtrace program execution that precedes some event. You can also use run trace for simple profiling. Basically, OllyDbg executes debugged program step-by-step, like in animation, but it doesn't redraw windows and - most important - logs addresses, contents of registers, messages and known operands to the run trace buffer. If debugged code is self-modified, you can save original commands. Start run trace by pressing Ctrl+F11 (run trace into, entering subroutines) or Ctrl+F12 (run trace over, executing calls at once), and stop it with F12 or Esc.

    You can specify a set of conditions that are checked on each step of the run trace (shortcut: Ctrl+T). Run trace stops if any condition is met. Conditions include:

    Ok, so stopping the trace in program doesnt stop ollydbg tracing other programs. I loaded my TI89 ROM guess what is running? Trace. There is something after all.
