**SolarWinds recommends that you install all Microsoft updates and enable TLS 1.2 before Dameware is installed, as Dameware works only with TLS 1.2 installed only. If it is not present and correctly configured, Dameware will not work, and users will experience connection issues.
The APIs used by Dameware Remote Support may require the Server Service and the NetLogon Service (domain environments) for the user to authenticate to this remote machine over the network. Dameware Remote Support also requires the Remote Registry Service for functions that require access to the Registry.
