From version 12.01.0006, the NetSupport Manager Control (PCICTLUI.EXE) accepts command line options to perform connections via PIN Connect.

The command line below will connect to a Client machine using a PIN code created at the Client:

“C:\Program Files\NetSupport\NetSupport Manager\PCICTLUI.EXE” /s12345

It is possible to include command parameters to perform additional options:

    • PCICTLUI /s12345 /v – Connect and start viewing in share mode.
    • PCICTLUI /s12345 /vc – Connect and start viewing in control mode.
    • PCICTLUI /s12345 /vw – Connect and start viewing in watch mode.
    • PCICTLUI /s12345 /v /ev – Connect and start viewing in share mode and exit when the View window is closed (the main window is hidden).

The ‘v’ command can be exchanged with the following:

    • ‘a’ – to chat (and /ea to exit).
    • ‘I’ – show inventory (and /ei to exit).
    • ‘m’ – remote command prompt (/em to exit).
    • ‘x’ – file transfer (/ex to exit).

Windows environment variables can be used to create a link to PCICTLUI.EXE.

For example, you can create an environment value called ‘CONTROL’ and link to “C:\Program Files\NetSupport\NetSupport Manager\PCICTLUI.EXE”.

You can then use the following command:

%CONTROL% /sXXXXX

Instead of:

“C:\Program Files\NetSupport\NetSupport Manager\PCICTLUI.EXE” /sXXXXX

To add or change environment variables

  1. Right-click My Computer and click Properties.
  2. Select the Advanced tab.
  3. Click Environment Variables.
  4. User and System variables will be displayed.

  1. Click New to add a new variable name and value.
  2. Select an existing variable and click Edit to change its name or value.
  3. Select an existing variable and click Delete to remove it.

Variable name: CONTROL
Variable value: “C:\Program Files\NetSupport\NetSupport Manager\PCICTLUI.EXE”
