    Locating the necessary files from your (Windows) computer is simple:

    • Open the Start menu, type in ‘Run’ and press ‘Enter’.
    • A search field will be displayed on the screen – type in ‘%temp%’ and press ‘Enter’.
    • You will now see a structure tree on your screen. Type in ‘eID’ in the search field in the upper right corner of the screen and locate all log files entitled ‘eID_software*’ as at today’s date or as at the day when the software installation failed).

    Save all these files (e.g. from the right-click menu) in a folder on your computer – or even directly on your desktop.
