General Information

The User Consent Tool is an application that demonstrates how an IT technician can connect to a remote Intel AMT system that is defined to require user consent.

File location

The User Consent Tool exe is located at: Windows\Intel_AMT\Bin\Tools\UserConsent

The User Consent Tool code is located at: Windows\Intel_AMT\Tools\UserConsent\UCT

When the tool executes, it creates a connection history file at
%localappdata%\Intel_Corporation. The UCT uses this information to reconnect to platforms it has connected to in the past.


Required user privileges

The user running the User Consent Tool must be defined in the Access Control List (ACL) of the remote Intel AMT device:

   A user with the ADMINISTRATION_REALM privilege can use all the User Consent Tool options.

   A user with the REMOTE_CONTROL_REALM and the GENERAL_INFO_REALM privileges can use all of the options except for changing the monitor settings.

   A user with the SOLIDER_REALM and the GENERAL_INFO_REALM privileges can use all of the options except for changing the monitor settings or the boot options.

Microsoft .NET Framework and slow reaction of the application

To use the User Consent Tool, Microsoft .NET Framework must be installed on the computer. Intel recommends .NET Framework version 2.0 (SP1) or higher. Some other versions can cause the User Consent Tool to operate slowly. This can occur because .NET Framework repeatedly attempts to verify the signed DLL files, even when there is no internet connection.

The User Consent Tool includes a configuration file (UCT.exe.config.exe) in the same folder as the exe file. You can add this entry to the configuration file to prevent .NET Framework from connecting to the internet to verify the signed DLLs:


<generatePublisherEvidence enabled="false"/>



Using the help file on a network drive

The User Consent Tool includes a help file (in chm format). To open the help file when the tool is located on a network drive:

1.  Run the 'regedit' command from the command line.

2.  Locate the following subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\HTMLHelp\1.x\ItssRestrictions

(If this registry subkey does not exist, then create it.)

3.  Right-click ItssRestrictions and select New > DWORD Value.

4.  Type MaxAllowedZone, and then press <ENTER>.         

5.  Right-click MaxAllowedZone and select Modify.

6.  In the Value data box, type 3 (which means Internet Zone), and then click OK.
