  3. Run the following command, where <auth_token> is the authentication token that you generated in 1.

    C:\Program Files\IBM\WinCollect\bin\InstallHelper.exe -T <auth_token> -a "C:\Program Files\IBM\WinCollect\config\install_config_autocreate.txt" C:\Program Files\IBM\WinCollect\ bin\InstallHelper.exe -T xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx -a "C:\Program Files\IBM\WinCollect\config\install_config_autocreate.txt”
