There are several ways on how to collect logs from the ThinKiosk client.

From the Management Console

If the device is showing online (green icon), click "Retrieve Device Logs" on the device itself.

From the client GUI

If the device is not online on the console, toretrieve the logs from the ThinKiosk client simply unlock the client with the password provided by your admin and from the admin menu click "Export logs" 

Delete

From the file system (outside of GUI)

In the unlikely scenario where Installation fails or the ThinKiosk machine service doesn't start, you won't be able to retrieve the logs using the UI or the console, hence a manual approach has to be done.

Simply open the ThinKiosk installation path and send the support team, if requested, any .log or .log_old file inside this location.

Ready-to-use Powershell script

In the unlikely scenario where Installation fails or the ThinKiosk machine service doesn't start, you won't be able to retrieve the logs using the UI or the console, instead of the manual gathering, you can launch Powershell terminal on the unlocked Thinkiosk machine, and copy-paste the script from this link directly. Then run it.

The logs will be saved in a zip file on the Desktop, named after the machine name:
