Run the tool as administrator with the --help parameter to get an overview of the modes of operation and the different arguments:

$ imgctrl --help

When run with --help, the tool does not require elevated privileges. This mode also enables you to see the version of the tool.

Imgctrl alerts the user if insufficient privileges to operate are detected.

Note: Imgctrl creates a log file during installation to keep a log of all Imgctrl sessions since the time of installation of the actual release. It might be useful to the Napatech Support team in order to debug Imgctrl customer support issues. Any Imgctrl session displays the actual version of Imgctrl along with a reference to the log file location. Please note the log file location in case the log file must be forwarded to the Napatech Support team.
