The PFE version of MPS_REPORTS gathers a wide range of diagnostic information from Windows and limited information for server applications installed such as SQL or Exchange.The MPS Reporting Tool is self-extracting and will run on Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003 x86. Windows Server 2003 x64 (AMD64), and Windows Server 2003 for Itanium.This reporting utility DOES NOT make any registry changes to the operating system and is entirely a batch command utility.

The compressed .cab file is normally 2-5 MB depending on the system configuration and is therefore easy to transfer in case the data is needed for analysis.
