The diagent.exe process is part of the software Creative Diagnostics Agent. The diagent.exe program consumes about 135.2Kilobytes of virtual memory when it is active. It is incorporated mostly with Creative audio cards to provide sound for the system.

The diagent.exe program is responsible for providing a diagnostics feature once the user right-clicks on the system tray shortcut icon of the Creative Technology Multimedia application. If the user clicks on the Diagnostic Agent selection from the tray icon menu, it runs the Diagnostic Utility application or the diagent.exe process.

The diagent.exe file or the Creative Diagnostic Agent utility has a graphical user interface (GUI) window that runs several tests on the audio card and some system files that are related to the audio card itself. It displays the status of the audio device if it has recurring errors or glitches. The diagent.exe file is incorporated with other Creative audio device drivers and runs in the background as long as the audio card is enabled and the tray icon is present.

Creative Technology Limited designed the main application Creative Technology Multimedia, along with its support software namely the Diagnostic Agent or the diagent.exe utility. The company initially started as a computer repair shop that was able to develop an add-on memory board for Apple II computer. After that, the firm started creating and developing customized personal computers configured for the Chinese language.
