Forum / Remote Desktop Manager - Beta

New beta for Remote Desktop Manager 6.2

@zim2323

Ouff, I'm not sure what I can do. I will see if I can find anything in the documentation but if you have a solution for me, let me know

@pgordemer
What I suspect is that the macro is executed too quickly, I will add a notification in the trayicon when it's executed we will see it. For the delay, I will support both for backward compatibility, but you are right.

I don't have one. I was kinda of hoping together we could work together on creating one. Honestly, you could create a tool completely seperate from Remote Desktop Manager for the Enterprise market specifically geared to creating a tool for managing the new RDS infrastructure and I would bet more than one person would go for it. There are a lot of people dissapointed in how Microsoft implemented the new RDS Manager.

Like I said, let me get you connected through LogMe.In or something similar and show you.

It's interesting, but It will have to wait until this release is completed. Right after, you could come to me with this and I will take a look at it.

thanks for drag and drop,

but :

- in cloud explorer is it possible to delete something by pressing del.
- when i drag and drop to local (download large file), if i cancel, remote destop freeze.
- when i drag and drop to cloud (upload large file), no progress bar are visible.


In another subject is it possible to have an integration of this product (M-file) http://www.m-files.com. I see api for client developement.

thanks again

Hi David,
first of all: many many many thanks for this very cool Programm RDM. Our Support is very happy to work with such a great tool.
pls. can you explain how the new feature "Added the possibility to package an installer without a subscription" is used. What can one do with the resulting .rdi file?

Whish list:
- pls. add a link "Edit Session" to the Dashboard. So that you do not have to right click on a session to edit.
- is there a possibliity to not reload the whole Session Data from SQL when one edited a session (in SQL Mode)?
- a feature to automatically reconnect a RDP Session would be nice (in a case of Serverreboot for example)
- pls make the colums in "openned Session" smaller and safe the width in the config file.

Thanks for your great work.

Björn

Hi BJ11
For the new feature about the installer package, it's used to to create a package on a computer without a subscription. A subscription is still required to process the package but this allow you to create a specific package on different machine.

For the edit, you can double click on the header (name or icon) to edit the session, but I will try to add edit in the available button.
For the full reload, there is an Advanced option to "Force refresh before session edit"
The automatic reconnect is on my todo list for the next version
I added the feature request for the opened session grid. I might be able to squeeze it for the final beta.

I'm just playing with the latest beta 6.1.11.0 and I cant type a Polish character outside of RDM! The problem is with Ctrl-Alt-A shortcut which we use to enter a special national character (actually we use the right Alt key, the AltGR, but it's actually Ctrl-Alt). You've made it global, so the keys are inactive even outside of RDM. The regular (non-beta) ver. works fine. So I can't have my letter typed in a word processor as long as RDM is launched in background!

And a small complain: the treeview items are spaced not so tight as they were in v.5.8. There is too much vertical space among items so less items are visible on screen. I see no reason for it.

Clock7 yrs

Hi,
The shortcut is not confgurable yet but in the xml configuration (remotedesktopmanager.cfg) you can change DisableExecuteTypingMacroHotKey to true. I will add it in the UI for the next beta

Also for the vertical spacing, we changed it to the default in Windows Explorer. You can change it back in the application option by checking Disable Tree View themes.

Glad to hear your business is growing and that RDM is getting a well needed price increase, have you decided on any price changes for renewalls? Also, I asked this in a previous post that you must have not noticed but please give us some info on what RDM Server is going to be. As we are already using RDM on a server with SQL I can only imagine what your intentions are.

FYI... TheGreenBow VPN Add-on keeps showing that an update is needed, even though I updated it. I deleted and redownloaded new. Still shows that it needs updated.

Any ideas?

Clock7 yrs

Hi,

@Ohip
Can you send me in a private email the file in %LocalAppData%\Devolutions\RemoteDEsktopManager\remotedesktopmanager.ext?

@Daniel
Yes we will have a small increase and some renewal prices changes but not for the single user. We set all the renewal price at 40% of the regular price.

For the server, we will release more details soon but it the same thing than Remote Desktop Manager Online but hosted or deployed by you. You will be able to deploy it on your own machine.

@
For the TheGreeBow VPN it's now integrated and we don't need the add-on anymore. I will fix this for the next beta release and it will no longer appears. Sorry about that.

During install, Get a prompt to include the program in Startup and also under Custom install get an option to make the program AutoStart. Need to remove one of the two options. I'd prefer to see the item removed from Custom install.

Hi,
I still have issues with the Tree View spacing. The optionn to Disable Tree View themes doesn't work at all, i.e. nothing changes, even after restart. Here's how it looks now and looked before:

I was, ehm, happier before...

@qqrq You can edit the remotedesktopmanager.cfg file and change TreeViewItemHeight to 16. I will add this value in the UI soon.
@Xanacas I'm unable to explain this .NET error but I think I have found a workaround can you try this version:

Hi,
Is it possible that you have TheGreenBow add-on installed? I'm asking that because from the error I see, it's related to the missing add-on verification and we have integrated this add-on

Hi,
I think it's because I haven't changed the version in the installer and it does not recognize the update. You can unzip it:

Hi,
an Option to always open RDM in collapsed tree view would be very nice.
Like:
Sessions
+Customer1
+Customer2
+.....
Credentials
Session Script Tools
Thanks

Clock7 yrs

Do you mean Open Always Collapsed everytime the application start?
