    If you configured the LoggingService to send messages to MCS (by uncommenting the MCSHandler property), follow the procedure in Viewing MCS Events.

Presentation Builder Runtime Service Level Errors

Errors that happen outside the context of your custom application but within the context of Presentation Builder Runtime Service are considered Presentation Builder Runtime Service-level errors. They are fatal (the application will be terminated), and will be reported to the Presentation Renderer, or, in the case of HTML-based custom applications, to the browser, which displays a message to the end user in a message box.
