Dameware Mini Remote Control (MRC) 12.2.2 features security improvements to the saved hosts protection mechanism. As a result, you must back up your MRC registry settings and saved hosts from your previous Dameware version(s). See Back up Dameware Mini Remote Control settings and hosts during upgrade to version 12.2.2 for additional information.
Due to improved security standards, Dameware 12.2.2 is not compatible with agent versions earlier than Dameware 12.2. Agents must be removed and version 12.2.2 installed again through the application or re-installed via the agent installer.
