Classic Shell Utility

Download the Classic Shell Utility, which will collect information about your system that can assist in troubleshooting problems. When you run the tool it will ask you to save a text file with the information. Save the file and attach it in a forum post that describes your problem.

For best results:
  • Run the tool using the same account that is causing problems. Do not run as administrator.
  • The tool may ask for administrative credentials if necessary. If you choose not to provide them, the tool will still work but will collect less information.
  • Some of the collected information may be sensitive (like what applications you have installed). If you wish to keep that information confidential, you can either upload the file to the FileDrop folder (see below), or archive it with a password, attach the archive in the forums and send a PM with the password to the user Ivo.


Use this location to upload crash dumps or screenshots for troubleshooting:
Media Fire FileDrop
Important: Please enter a description for the file - who is it from and what is it for. Or post a message in the forums. Otherwise I have no way of knowing what to do with it.
