Q: I'm getting an Unhandled exception while running the Tool

A: Your getting this error is because you haven't Elevated the program i.e. you haven't ran the program as administrator follow this tutorial for more information Run as administrator.

Q: Nothing happens while I click on the Tool

A: Most probably your Antivirus / Firewall might be blocking the Tool from running so it's recommend to disable your Antivirus / Firewall and then run the Tool again. Also right click on the Tool go to Properties and under General Tab see it has an option "Unblock" if so click on unblock then try again

Q: When I open the application it's asking to download .NET Frameworks 4.0

A: This application is build with .NET Frameworks 4.0 so you need to download .NET Frameworks 4.0 from Microsoft's website.



How To:

- Right click on the extracted W8 Log Collector.exe file, and click on Run as administrator
- Click on Grab All
- Click on OK when prompted for each report saved to the W8 folder on your desktop.

Hi,

First, nice app, and very useful, thanks.

But, note the following....

1.) If run from a different drive (ie. F:) it creates (F:\Users\userprofilename\Desktop\W8) for ...

a. MSINFO32.nfo
b. EventSys.txt
c. EventApp.txt​

Throws an error for the IEDiag.cab, but still places it on the desktop directly, not in a folder
And creates a W8 folder and places the Hosts.txt there.
So, from any other drive, it throws things in different locations.

The concern is, if we wanted to run this from a thumb drive, it would not work properly.

It works properly if run as admin from the desktop.

An added feature would be to create an already zipped file of the contents in the W8 folder, placed inside the W8 folder, along with the files there left unzipped. Just a thought.

What would actually be nicer, would be to create the W8 folder from the location the app is run, rather than placing on the desktop.

Thanks Shawn, I had pinged Nigel to see if it worked for him, but he must have gone offline ;)
