Advanced Logcat Viewer (ALV) is a very powerful tool to work with logcats on Windows. It's easy to use and includes the most popular features when it comes to working with Android log files.
The Advanced Logcat Viewer was originally created for my IDE Virtuous Ten Studio, but I think it's useful enough to be published as a standalone version as well.
It has the same features as within VTS but is obvioulsy a much lighter package for people that don't want or need the additional functionality VTS offers.

ALV can easily do the following for you:
  • Grab the actual logcat from a connected device in realtime and with live updates
  • Highlight the log entries in different colors based on their verbosity
  • Dynamically filter the incoming logs with a search term, a verbosity filter or an exclude term
  • Save the filtered or unfiltered logcat to a text file
  • Upload the filtered or unfiltered logcat to pastebin for easy sharing
  • Load logcat entries from a text file to analyze existing logcats or from other people

Suggestion...

Very nice and useful work. I have a suggestion. I have downloaded ALV and I have extracted it without the External directory which contains the adb tool. The result of starting the logcat receiver was an unhandled exception. My intention was to use the adb which I already had following the installation of the Google SDK. My suggestion for the ALV would be the following idea: try to launch External/ADB/adb.exe, then launch the adb based on the PATH environment variable then display an error if no adb tool has been found. Or simply put a browsing button and a text box populated with a default path to adb.

Long time VTS user. It rocks. On Win 8.1. Not sure how to install this. Tried running the exe and does nothing. Feeling kinda stupid right now. :cool:

Edit: NVM got it just had to move it around manually. Working good.

Oha? Where and what did you move?
For some reason it didn't want to extract to C/Program Files so I just manually moved it over so it would be in same place as VTS. Not sure why didn't want to direct extract with 7 zip. Kept getting an access denied error on Win 8. Could extract all to Desktop no problem. Had to be something on my end. :cool:

    I've just released the second standalone tool from VTS: The Advanced Screenshot Creator.
    It's a replacement for the screenshot part of DDMS but offers you a much better interface and more flexibility.

    Check it out :)

    Really useful tool, quite handy to have it as a lighter standalone too.

    Direct upload to Pastebin, and ability to import externally generated logcats are real standout features.
