When issues occur within a Kofax product used, technical support needs the product generated log files for analysis and check for occurring problems or mis-configurations.

To make the collection of these log files easier for customers, technical support provides a Log Collector application which will make it easier to provide the needed files.



The latest version of Log collector can be downloaded from the Utilities section on
