Upgrading the Remote MRC Client Agent and MRC Client Agent from the Command Line (Silent Installs)

 
The information in this article applies to:
  • DameWare Mini Remote Control - Version(s) 12.0 and later

The MSI installers for version 9.0.1 of the MRC client agent include command-line arguments that allow you to upgrade existing clients silently and retain their current settings, if preferred.

Notes:

  • Run the commands in the following procedures with Administrator permissions.
  • Avoid using relative paths when running the commands. Since you are running them with Administrator permissions, the working directory is %WINDIR%\System32.

Complete the following procedures according to your upgrade preferences. Replace fileName.msi in either procedure with one of the following:

  • DWRCS_NT_32.msi
  • DWRCS_Vista_32.msi
  • DWRCS_Vista_64.msi
  • DWRCS_XP_64.msi

Use the following commands at the command line or in an installer script:

To upgrade the MRC client agent and retain its current settings:

msiexec /qn /i fileName.msi KEEPSETTINGS=1


To upgrade the MRC client agent and reset its current settings:

msiexec /qn /i fileName.msi


To upgrade the Remote MRC client agent and retain its current settings:

fileName.exe -ap "/qn /i TRANSFORMS=transform_DWRCS_Vista_64.mst KEEPSETTINGS=1"


To upgrade the Remote MRC client agent and reset its current settings:

fileName.exe -ap "/qn /i TRANSFORMS=transform_DWRCS_Vista_64.mst OVERWRITEREMOTECFG=1"
