Custom installer service


  • Generate and download custom installation packages for Remote Desktop Manager.
  • Include preconfigured data sources in the package for quick enterprise wide deployment.
  • Download the installer as a Windows Installer (.msi file).

The Custom installer service offered through our Devolutions Customer Portal services replicates the configuration from a Remote Desktop Manager instance. This configuration is used to create an installer file (*.rdi), which will be used to create the installation package intended for distribution. The configuration can contain data sources, credentials, database templates, and more. It is best practice to have a Remote Desktop Manager installation used specifically to create the installation package.

The No Internet connection option in Remote Desktop Manager (FileOptionToolsAdvanced) must be disabled for Custom installer to work.

The Custom installer service uploads a configuration file to our online services. You should not use the service to redistribute passwords for data sources.

You must create an installer file using Remote Desktop Manager before creating the installer on the Web portal. This is described in Installer File Generator.

You can store and create up to six Custom installer configuration file packages in your Devolutions Account.

The Custom installer service can be found in with the Devolutions Account tools, located in File – Devolutions Account – Tools. You must be signed in to access it.
