Overview

This article provides steps on how to extract the Dameware MSI installers from their exe files. Installers for DameWare NTU and DameWare MRC include a command line option to extract its content where you can use the MSI file alone, or by repacking it.

Environment

  • DameWare Remote Support version 8.0 and later
  • DameWare Mini Remote Control version 8.0 and later

Steps

Note: If you run the MSI installers in unattended mode - using Group Policy, make sure that the target systems have .NET Framework 2.0 or higher installed first.

 

To extract the contents of the exe installers:

  1. Open a Command Prompt.
  2. Change directories to the folder that contains the exe file.
  3. Enter the exe filename, followed by -out targetFolder, where targetFolder is the folder into which you want to extract the MSI installer. For example, enter damewarentu-v8.0.exe -out c:\temp.
  4. In Windows Explorer, navigate to the target folder to find the MSI file.

Note: If you plan to use the MSI file to install onto a computer with User Account Control (UAC) enabled, run the installer as Administrator to avoid a known complication with the MSI installer:

  1. Right-click the installer file.
  2. Select Run as administrator.
  3. If necessary, enter the appropriate credentials.
