No installation is required.
Support Agent download »
Note: The Agent executable is a fully featured connection client. It can be used to take control of a Remote Support session, or to share sessions as an end-user. The End-user executable is streamlined to provide only the necessary information to share a session and receive support.
To share a Windows session with a support agent, run the end-user executable. Once running, Remote Support will present the end-user with an ID and password to share with the support agent.
Once an agent is connected, the end-user has access to a chat box for communication with the agent, as well as file sharing between the agent and end-user. The Remote Support Session can be terminated by the user at any time by simply closing the chat box.
To take control of a Windows PC using Remote Support, simply run the Agent executable. Once started, Remote Support will open the fully featured connection client. On the right side of the screen is the Remote Computer Access section. Enter the ID received from the end-user here and click Connect.
The agent will be asked for the end-user's password.
Upon successful connection, the agent will be presented with the end-user's desktop, as well as control of the end-user's mouse, and other peripherals.
For example, run the above command to disable the license on your installation providing your license key.
The steps illustrated above will create a successful Remote Support connection.
Remote Support has much more to offer than just the basics. Be sure to have a deeper look through the technical documentation for details about customization unattended access and other advanced configurations.
