This article describes one way to install the DameWare Mini Remote Control (DMRC) Client Agent Service on a remote machine by building a Windows Installer (MSI) package through the new DMRC Client Agent MSI Builder included in version 6.x and later. The DMRC Client Agent MSI Builder allows the user to build custom MSI packages including any custom settings (INI or Registry) to deploy the DMRC Client Agent Service in his environment. These MSI packages can then be sent to clients via any of the existing distribution methods such as email, distribution via Group Policies, and so on.

DameWare Development, LLC has partnered with RSA Security, Inc. to use the BSAFE Crypto-C Micro Edition cryptography module, which has met all Level 1 requirements for Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 compliance when operated in FIPS Mode. However, in order to take advantage of this new FIPS Mode option the RSA FIPS Modules must also be on the remote machine, which can easily be included in the MSI package by enabling the Include FIPS Modules option. When this new FIPS Mode option is set, DameWare Mini Remote Control will exclusively use the BSAFE Crypto-C ME FIPS 140-2 validated cryptographic library, which in turn will only allow FIPS-approved algorithms to be utilized. The new FIPS mode functionality is included in version 6.7 and later of DameWare Mini Remote Control:
Once the MSI package is generated, it will contain all specified settings. To have unattended connections, the MSI package should be installed with special transform files MST.
The default location is:
C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\DameWare Central Server
If you want to use only MSI Package without any configuration MST file, Orca Editor can be used to generate a package containing all configurations.
