If I compile the following MWE with Rubber under Linux (rubber --pdf VerboseDemo.tex) I get a nice verbose level including the HyperRef debug.

However if I compile with plain pdflatex under windows (pdflatex.exe VerboseDemo.tex also under Linux BTW) I get much less output and not the HyperRef debug

How can I get the same extensive verbose level under Windows TexLive as with Rubber on Linux? How can I enable this on Windows?

    That just looks like the difference between the terminal output and the .log file to me: have you checked the log you get in the first case?

    Yes that is it! Console Output != Log File

The Log file is more verbose than Console Output. Console Output != Log File. Thanks Jopseph.
