Mini Remote Control Command Line Switches

 
The information in this article applies to:
  • DameWare Mini Remote Control

New Page 1

DameWare Development is adopting a consistent set of command-line switches that can be used with the DameWare Mini Remote Control (DMRC).  This article describes these command-line switches and their behaviors.

Note: Current versions that support these newer command-line switches also support earlier command-line switches for backwards compatibility.  However, usage of the earlier switches should be discontinued as this support may be removed in future software updates.
