Easy-to-Use Remote Control

Take complete command of remote computers, whether in the same building, across town, or across the world. DameWare MRC makes remote desktop sharing incredibly fast and provides the tools needed to solve your remote users' issues quickly and easily.

Access Computers with Intel AMT using KVM

Connect to computers via remote Keyboard, Video, and Mouse (KVM) with built-in support for Intel Active Management Technology (AMT). With this feature, you can remotely control a computer regardless of the state of its operating system.

Chat with End-Users & Capture Remote Screenshots

With the chat feature in DameWare MRC, you can chat online with your remote user as you troubleshoot or configure the remote computer. Familiar chat windows on both the remote user’s screen and yours make it easy to troubleshoot issues as you view their desktop.

Manage Remote Access Privileges

DameWare MRC allows you the flexibility to set permissions for access to remote computers based on roles within your organisation.

Automatically Deploy Remote Control Agents

The DameWare MSI Builder included with every purchase of MRC, allows you to create an MSI package for the installation of the MRC Client Agent Service, including any custom settings.

Support Smart Card Authentication

Highly secure environments, like those within the United States Federal Government, often require Smart Card authentication.


DameWare Mini Remote Control is licensed per user, not per computer, with no additional fees for client agents installed by the program. The number of licenses required must correspond with the actual number of people that use the software. For example, if there are 10 technicians that will be running the software and connecting to 10,000 remote machines, a 10-user license is required.

Each user license allows for three separate installations (for example: desktop, laptop, and home computer). A user installing in three separate locations will still be covered under the licence provided that they are the only person running the software on those additional machines.
