"Start Remote Control Session" Grayed Out

Hi @Paul

Is there a chance you can add 2 weeks on my account as well? I'd really like to try out this feature.

For sure! I've activated the trial subscription :lol:.

So here is the question. My account says that it's "Pro" which is not listed on the pricing page - I'm assuming that it is simply the free plan. Remote control is enabled, yet not available. I do not want to pay for 3 systems, how can I get a subscription for a single host? Like you know, something that us mere mortals in Europe can spare for a feature that we'll use once a year. €2.29 a month / € 27.48 a year is not very welcoming value for this use case.

Hello @Rhea,

We list the Pro plan on the website as "Starter". To be able to use the Pulseway Remote Control functionality you have to purchase a subscription (of any size). Also if you decide to add another system, you will not be charged for the two systems you have received free of charge. In other words a 3 system subscription will only cost you € 27.48 per year and will give you monitoring and remote control capabilities for all 3 systems.

So, if I download the starter version and only want to control 2 computers it won't work because I don't buy a license for 3 or more. If that is the case then it would appear that the first 2 are not free, just discounted. I wanted this to be able to get on my granddaughters computer when she was having problems. I am not against buying the third license, the price is fine for that. Just think there should be something that states the 2 free won't allow remote access. Tirade done, if I purchase the third license will that activate remote control?

Correct, purchasing the third license will activate remote control. We do mention on the plan comparison that the free plan doesn't include Remote Control.

So after a bit of banging my head on the desk over WHY my remote access was greyed out, I stumbled on this. The entire reason for downloading and trying this was to hopefully replace another remote app we are currently using.

Seriously, this. There is NO indication that the Remote Desktop feature is an Pro/Enterprise Only feature. You're going to lose customers because they will simply try a limited deployment on 2 systems using the free version (maybe on their home PC and their Kid's PC, like I did) and give up on making Remote Work (like I did) and move on to the next product that has better documentation.

Then, later down the line, they will come back and work on why the Remote doesn't work, find this and with an exasperated sigh they will say "Oh, well. We're already using PRODUCT_B."

I was doing the same thing! This should really be advertised upfront. I was losing my mind digging through posts and config guides.

Same here. I spent one hour to figure out why it does not work. It should be clear: "This feature is not enabled for free version"

I also wanted to change from Team Viewer, but firstly I had to test your remote desktop feature.

Is it possible to activate for a few days to see how it looks like?

Hi, sorry for the delay. I've activated a subscription on your account for two weeks.

Enjoy!

      Hi all,
      I hope you're having a great day and are keeping safe.
      I'm having an issue with setting up email notifications via SMTP to Office365. I've followed the document on setting Pulseway up to talk with Office365. I've also been in touch with support on this and haven't been satisfied with their answer.
      Have any of you linked this up successfully? If so, which IP addresses do you have whitelisted? Is there anything obvious I'm missing?
      I've set up a relay and can't see any attempt at mail delivery via 365.
      Cheers!
      Joe

      Hi,
      I am trying to install GCPW (Google Credential Provider for Windows).
      I am running into issue where with it:
      <# This script downloads Google Credential Provider for Windows from https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gcpw/, then installs and configures it. Windows administrator access is required to use the script. #> <# Set the following key to the domains you want to allow users to sign in from. For example: $domainsAllowedToLogin = "acme1.com,acme2.com" #> $domainsAllowedToLogin = "" Add-Type -AssemblyName System.Drawing Add-Type -AssemblyName PresentationFramework <# Check if one or more domains are set #> if ($domainsAllowedToLogin.Equals('')) { $msgResult = [System.Windows.MessageBox]::Show('The list of domains cannot be empty! Please edit this script.', 'GCPW', 'OK', 'Error') exit 5 } function Is-Admin() { $admin = [bool](([System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity]::GetCurrent()).groups -match 'S-1-5-32-544') return $admin } <# Check if the current user is an admin and exit if they aren't. #> if (-not (Is-Admin)) { $result = [System.Windows.MessageBox]::Show('Please run as administrator!', 'GCPW', 'OK', 'Error') exit 5 } <# Choose the GCPW file to download. 32-bit and 64-bit versions have different names #> $gcpwFileName = 'gcpwstandaloneenterprise.msi' if ([Environment]::Is64BitOperatingSystem) { $gcpwFileName = 'gcpwstandaloneenterprise64.msi' } <# Download the GCPW installer. #> $gcpwUrlPrefix = 'https://dl.google.com/credentialprovider/' $gcpwUri = $gcpwUrlPrefix + $gcpwFileName Write-Host 'Downloading GCPW from' $gcpwUri Invoke-WebRequest -Uri $gcpwUri -OutFile $gcpwFileName <# Run the GCPW installer and wait for the installation to finish #> $arguments = "/i "$gcpwFileName"" $installProcess = (Start-Process msiexec.exe -ArgumentList $arguments -PassThru -Wait) <# Check if installation was successful #> if ($installProcess.ExitCode -ne 0) { $result = [System.Windows.MessageBox]::Show('Installation failed!', 'GCPW', 'OK', 'Error') exit $installProcess.ExitCode } else { $result = [System.Windows.MessageBox]::Show('Installation completed successfully!', 'GCPW', 'OK', 'Info') } <# Set the required registry key with the allowed domains #> $registryPath = 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Google\GCPW' $name = 'domains_allowed_to_login' [microsoft.win32.registry]::SetValue($registryPath, $name, $domainsAllowedToLogin) $domains = Get-ItemPropertyValue HKLM:\Software\Google\GCPW -Name $name if ($domains -eq $domainsAllowedToLogin) { $msgResult = [System.Windows.MessageBox]::Show('Configuration completed successfully!', 'GCPW', 'OK', 'Info') } else { $msgResult = [System.Windows.MessageBox]::Show('Could not write to registry.

      I have tried the following:
      1. Run from batch file -- error "run as admin" but admin parameter was added
      2. Run from PowerShell --  error "leaves the script running forever"
      3. Pushed file to user and ran it (1) PowerShell -- error "needs run as admin" but admin parameter was added (2) batch -- error "script non-responsive"

      Hi,
      I am looking for a script that can trigger a 3rd party patch policy ad-hoc outside the policy schedule.
      It´s going to be used to start the installation process of software on newly registered machines in a "Computer registered" workflow.
      If there is anyone with another take on that I´m all ears.

      Best regards

      Mike

      I was searching for an option in the mobile Android app to switch the language! Perhaps I'm just blind... 
      Thanks,
