Use Log4net ... this is a standard logging tool used in many organizations (at least those where I've already worked) ... and it is east to use and well documented.

enclose your code in Try ...  Catch and log any errors trapped there to a log file,e.g
Try
   'your code here
Catch ex As Exception
    Dim LogFile = "C:\MyLog.txt"
       If Not File.Exists(LogFile) Then
           File.WriteAllText(LogFile, String.Join(", ", {TimeOfDay, ex.Message}) & VbCrLF)
       Else
           File.AppendAllText(LogFile, String.Join(", ", {TimeOfDay, ex.Message}) & VbCrLF)
       End If
End Try

from my code above, you only have to add the MessageBox.Show(), e.g
Try
   'your code here
Catch ex As Exception
    Dim LogFile = "C:\MyLog.txt"
       If Not File.Exists(LogFile) Then
           File.WriteAllText(LogFile, String.Join(", ", {TimeOfDay, ex.Message}) & VbCrLF)
       Else
           File.AppendAllText(LogFile, String.Join(", ", {TimeOfDay, ex.Message}) & VbCrLF)
       End If
       MessageBox.Show(ex.Message.ToString)
End Try
