The following information relates to hipaadc.exe and hipaacmdline.exe.

######################
# WHICH EXE TO USE?
######################
hipaadc.exe is used to run the collection on JUST THE LOCAL COMPUTER. By 
default(with no parameters), it will produce a file called 
<COMPUTERNAME>-<MAC ADDRESS>.hdf IN A FOLDER called output. This exe can 
also take the -outdir and/or -outbase options.

hipaacmdline.exe is used to run the collection on the network and/or the 
local computer. It REQUIRES the -file <param file> option to run a 
collection. The <param file> file should be generated using 
RunHIPAADataCollector.exe. There is a save parameters option link button
on the Verify and Run screen. If you are just looking to generate
an encrypted password to be used in a parameter file, use the -encrypt
option.
