Troubleshooting Prey for laptops (Windows, Mac OS X, Linux)

Maybe you don’t get reports, or some actions simply don’t run. These simple commands will help our support team identify what the problem is.


Open a Windows command prompt (“cmd”).
Assuming Prey is installed on the default folder, run this command:
C:Preyplatformwindowsbinbash.exe > C:UsersYOUR_WINDOWS_USERNAMEDesktopprey.log
And also this one:
C:Preyplatformwindowsbinbash.exe --check > C:UsersYOUR_WINDOWS_USERNAMEDesktopprey-check.log(Check Mode)
That will save two files on your desktop, prey.log and prey-check.log. Please attach those when you contact our support team, or paste them on our forums.

Mac OS X and Linux

Open a terminal.
Run this command:
And also this one:
/usr/share/prey/ --check (Check Mode)
Please paste their output when you contact our support team or post on our forums.
