Getting started

Download / Installation

If you have not yet copied the MDM-Client download the file mdm.zip onto your computer and unpack (e.g.: with WinZip orWinRAR) the files into any local folder.

Important: Please always copy the MDM into a local file on your computer, since .Net Framework does not permit execution of a network drive as a standard feature.

Warning: To run on your computer, MDM requires Microsoft .Net Framework 4.5. This means that the MDM client will not run any longer with Windows XP. If the .NEt Framework 4.5 does not already reside on your computer, please first install it (To download page: MS .Net Framework 4.5).

If you do not know whether Version 4 of Framework is loaded on your computer, you can determine which versions and service pack levels of the Microsoft .NET Framework are installed by using Microsoft KB article 318785
