IssueThis article explains how to collect data from an RSA Authentication Agent 7.x for Windows for troubleshooting.  This is helpful if a customer is experiencing a technical issue with a deployed RSA Authentication Agent 7.x for Windows on a supported Windows platform.
ResolutionRSA Customer Support will require an administrator to collect as much information from a supported Windows platform that is hosting the RSA Authentication Agent 7.x for Windows software and the zip file attached to this RSA knowledge article will assist the administrator with this task.


  1. Download the RSAAgent_CollectData.zip from this article.
  2. Unzip the RSAAgent_CollectData.zip file into a temporary folder.
  3. Use  Run as administrator to open a command prompt and navigate into the RSAAgent_CollectData folder created by unpacking of the zip file RSAAgent_CollectData.zip.
  4. In the RSAAgent_CollectData folder enter the command RSAAgent_DataCollect.cmd and press Enter.  For example:

                RSA Customer Support Asia Pacific

                  system tests version 5.0.89

ACE/Server location configured as C:\ACE_CHECK_TEMP
Temporary workspace set to C:\ACE_CHECK_TEMP
