Table of contents

Updated January 3, 2019

Overview

Some end users want their system to default to Permission Required before you establish a remote session to their computer using Dameware Mini Remote Control (MRC). 

Environment

  • MRC 10
  • MRC 11
  • MRC 12

Steps

Warning: SolarWinds strongly recommends that you back up your registry before making any edits to your system registry. You should only edit the registry if you are experienced and confident in doing so. Using a registry editor incorrectly can cause serious issues with your operating system, which could require you to reinstall your operating system to correct them. SolarWinds cannot guarantee resolutions to any damage resulting from making registry edits. 

 

  1. In the Start window, type regedit to open the Registry Editor.
  2. Navigate to:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > DameWare Development > Agent Configuration > Mini Remote Control Service > Settings > Permission Required
    If this path does not contain the key, navigate to:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > DameWare Development > Mini Remote Control Service > Settings > Permission Required
  3. Change this setting from 0 to 1.
    A notification should display in the computer system tray, stating that the MRC agent is being reconfigured.
