Dameware Mini Remote Installation error

Updated September 21, 2017


In some cases, Dameware Mini Remote Control version 12 and later does not install correctly, or you may encounter an error.


Dameware Mini Remote Control Version 12 and later.


The cause is unknown at the moment. SolarWinds is exploring the issue.


As a workaround, you can install Dameware Remote Support, which contains Mini Remote Control. Even though you only have a license for Mini Remote Control, the installation still completes. During the installation, make sure to enter the Mini Remote Control license key into the Dameware Licensor dialog box.


Note: If you receive a .NET error, then upgrade to 4.5 .NET framework, or activate Dameware offline.
