Access denied error when installing an agent on a remote computer

When installing an MRC agent on a remote computer from the MRC application, a prompt appears to re-enter the password  or an error appears saying access is denied.


  • DameWare Remote Support 11.0
  • DameWare Mini Remote Control 11.0


This occurs when the account used has administrative privileges.


Perform one of the following resolutions:

  • Manually install the agent.
  • Disable TCP on the machine with the MRC or DRS application:
    1. Open Regedit
    2. Under the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control key, replaced the value for DisableRPCOverTCP key to 1.
    3. Restart the computer.
  • Use an account with administrator privileges as the account name to log in to the computer and to log in to the MRC application.
