Use the Install Service wizard to install services on remote systems. The service executable file can be located on the local or remote system. DameWare Remote Support dynamically creates drive mappings for all drives on the remote system so the service executable can be installed from the remote system's disk(s).

If the administrator is not authenticated to the remote machine, then he/she will be prompted for credentials prior to the dynamic drive mappings.

To install a service on a remote system:

  1. In the Browser Pane, select the remote system on which you want to install the service.

  2. From the Tools menu, select Service Installation.

  3. In the Service Installation window, complete the Service Names dialog:

    1. In the Machine field, enter the hostname or IP address if necessary.

    2. In the Service Name field, enter the name of the service. The Service Name cannot contain forward or backward slash characters.

    3. In the Service Display Name field, enter a display name for the service. The Service Display Name is the text that appears in the Services view.

  4. Click Next.

  5. Complete the Service Executable dialog:

    1. In the Service Executable File Location field, enter or browse to the executable to install, including the full file path. When you click Browse, Remote Support opens a Browse dialog in which you can browse both the local and remote file systems.

    2. If the executable is not on the remote system, select Copy Executable to System32 Directory.

    3. If you want to copy additional files to the remote system, click Add, and then browse the local file system for additional files.

    4. If you want to specify command line parameters for the service, click Parameters, and then enter them.

  6. Click Next.

  7. On the Service Type dialog, select one of the following:

    • Service is it's own process

    • File system driver

    • Device driver

  8. Click Next.

  9. On the Service Logon dialog, select one of the following:

    • System Account: If applicable, also select Allow Service to Interact with Desktop.

    • This Account: Click Browse to browse to the account you want to specify for the service.

  10. Click Next.

  11. On the Service Startup Option dialog, select one of the following:

    • Automatic

    • Manual

    • Disabled

    • Boot

    • System

  12. If applicable, select Start Service After Installation.

  13. Click Next.

  14. On the Finish dialog, review the details of the new service. If necessary, click Back to return to an earlier dialog.

  15. To start the installation, click Finish.
