Can't get MSI Silent install to show up for ALL users, MSI installation
I install RAdmin Viewer and Server on all of our new systems. I am currently automating this and running it with the argument list /qb! REBOOT=ReallySuppress
this works to do a silent install.

However, when I do this, the start menu icons and add/remove program entries Only show up for the user who ran the install. Other users of the box cannot tell that it is installed.
I tried adding ALLUSERS=1 to the argument list but then it pops up the windows installer dialog box.

How can I get it to show up for All Users?

Moving License to new Hardware, How to avoid buying new licenses when you switch computers
I have seen many people asking related questions, but I didn't find an exact answer so I will post it my way.
We are wiping PC's and installing Windows 7. If they have an existing RAdmin license, it is gone and their new image needs to be licensed. That consumes a second license. The first is no longer in service. We have a 1000 user and a 500 user license, so it isn't a case of just buying a couple new licenses.
There does not appear to be any way to "unregister" a license. Is there a way we can send you data to get our licenses restored?
We could send you an SMS inventory showing where it is installed to give a current count, but this is an ongoing upgrade process.

If we move to the Activation Server in the future, will this address the issue?
Are there plans to address this in future versions (and if not, is it to late to get it on the wish list)?

Support for IPV6, Is there planned support for IPV6?
Any plans for adding support for IPV6? We are looking that direction internally. We would like to drop the IPV4 stack eventually.
Suggestion - Different Colors for Computers, On New Release - allow you to set colors for different computers
I have some folders where it would be convenient to have some computers stand out from the others. It would be nice to be able to set the color for different entries (Critical systems in Red, Redundant systems in blue, etc.)

Just a thought.
Advanced IP Scanner 2.0 Beta Testing since October 27, 2010, We invite you to become a Famatech software beta tester!
Downloaded and tested V2 Beta 2.
Windows 7-64
Installed fine and ran OK when I started it.
The line with the IP address ranges was very confusing since I had my VPN running and had multiple IP adresses. that needs to be cleaned up so it isn't confusing.

Scan ran and resolved the names of local computers incorrectly. I suspect it used the DNS server to pull the IP of the last few users who had connected with those IP's (
It also missed one print server on my subnet. - very disappointing.

I reran the scan and it found the printer the second time, but I shouldn't have to know everything on the network to use the product.
I submitted more thorough results via email.

Please consider, though it´s been discussed before...
I don't get what you are asking for? What do you want them to cache- the user/pwd you log in with?

What we do is create a local RAdmin user group on each machine when we install RAdmin.
Give that group full permissions in the RAdmin security setup.

Add the user you are running at your workstation to this group and when you go to connect- presto - it connects right in.

If you manage your users using domain groups - you simply add that domain group to the RAdmin group and everyone in your group can connect without entering additional credentials.

Of course, once you connect up to the machine you are required to log in. Unless you want them to pass your credentials to the login screen on the remote system...
Can't connect to server running under Win 2003
I am pretty sure you aren't supposed to have both installed on the same server. In the same way that you can't have WTS owning the console at the same time as RAdmin, you can't have RAdmin 2 & 3 installed simultaneously. I would un-install both delete any directories, etc. and install ONLY 3.
Can't connect to server running under Win 2003
We have had this issue with V2 as well as V3. When someone connects with MSTSC with the /console option, it screws up the Radmin server.

You can't connect as long as they maintain the console connection, but file transfer works.

Once they disconnect, you have to restart the Radmin server to be able to connect in.
File List & Location?, Where does RAdmin locate its files?
With RAdmin v2, we ran into issues with Symantec Antivirus treating it as a virus. We moved the files from the windows directory to the program files\radmin directory and created a rule that excluded that.

I don't see any RAdmin files for V3 beta.
1) Can I get a file list & location please?
2) Any issue with moving them similar to V2?

Can't connect to server running under Win 2003
I have seen this on 2003 Servers with Version 2. We tracked it down to someone using Remote Desktop in Console mode. That seems to kill the ability to do a RAdmin connection after that point.

Haven't found a workaround yet - except to get those users to use RAdmin instead and prevent the problem :!:
