MRC 9.0 is backward compatible with version 7.0+ of the MRC client agent

The information in this article applies to:
  • DameWare Mini Remote Control - Version(s) 9.0

Starting in version 9.0, MRC is backward compatible with the MRC client agent as far back as version 7.0. Use MRC v9.0 to connect to any remote systems running version 7.x, 8.x, or 9.x of the MRC client agent.

If you connect to an older supported client agent in MRC v9.0, MRC displays a dialog asking if you want to upgrade the agent to the latest version. This is not a requirement; however, we recommend updating to the latest version when possible to take advantage of fixes and additional features.

To connect to an older supported client agent with MRC v9.0 without upgrading the agent:

  1. Initiate the MRC connection as you would for any other version. MRC displays the upgrade dialog.
  2. If you do not want MRC to display the upgrade dialog for the selected host, select Don't ask again for this host and this version.
  3. Click No on the upgrade dialog.
