WinCollect Configuration Console Overview
In stand-alone deployments, use the WinCollect Configuration Console to manage your WinCollect deployment. Use the WinCollect Configuration Console to add devices that you want WinCollect to collect agents from, and add the JSA destination where you want to send events.
Before you can install the WinCollect Collect Configuration Console, you must do the following:
Install the WinCollect agent in stand-alone mode. For more information, see Installing the WinCollect Agent on a Windows Host.
Install .net framework version 3.5
Install Microsoft Management Console (MMC) 3.0 and later.
The following table describes the WinCollect Configuration Console.

The Destinations parameter defines where WinCollect device data is sent.
