This article describes how to restore or migrate the Saved Host List from one machine to another in Dameware version 11.

  • In older versions of MRC, moving the Saved Host Lists to other computers do not include passwords. Starting version 11.2.0, transfer of Saved Host List to another machine or computer is possible.
  • Running version 11.2.0 or later converts existing Saved Host List information from the old MRC.dbf database file to the new version 11.2.0 Saved Host List database file.
  • The MRCCv2.db file saved in 
    • C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Roaming\DameWare Development\MRCCv2.db
  • The passwords stored in the Registry are found in the following location:
    • [[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\DameWare Development\Mini Remote Control\Data\]
