Select a license

Choose a license for DameWare Mini Remote Control Starts at $259

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 license provided that they are the only person running the software on those additional machines.
