Once the executable completes, it will advise to zip up destination folder and attach it to your Kofax Support case.

This utility should not have any customer data as it does not connect to any databases, only gathers system information along with kofax configs and logs file types.  However, some customers may restrict information such as server names.  If this is the case, it is possible to redact the information in the files in the destination folder before zipping it and attaching to the Kofax support case.
