Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.)

How to connect to the target PC?

MightyViewer requires a direct connection to reach a remote computer, so to connect with MightyViewer, make sure your target computer runs a sort of VNC server.

  • If the target PC runs Windows, install a VNC server on it. We strongly recommend TightVNC as it provides best performance and compatibility with MightyViewer. You can download your free copy of TightVNC on its Web site —
  • Virtualization systems (such as VMware and QEMU) often include built-in VNC servers, although they may not be enabled by default.

How to activate MightyViewer?

1. After completing the purchase process, you will receive an email with an attached license key file from our reseller (PayPro Global).

2. The license key file is to be loaded to the application (top right corner menu → ‘Settings’ → ‘License Key’ → ‘Load License File’ button. After loading the license, a pop-up window with the activation result will appear. You may need to restart the application.

3. After successful activation, you can find information about your license in the ‘Current License‘ field.

Is the MightyViewer license a lifetime license or a subscription?

All the currently available licenses (single user, site, unlimited) are lifetime licenses.

Does the Single User license allow me to connect an unlimited number of stations to monitor?

Yes, all the currently available licenses do not restrict the number of stations you may connect to, monitor, and take over.

Is there a way to export/import settings?

Unfortunately, the export data functionality has not been implemented yet. However, there is an efficient workaround to move the data from one device to another.

All the MightyViewer data is stored in the store.db file, which is placed in %appdata%\GlavSoft\MightyViewer (i.e. C:\\Users\{your user}\AppData\Roaming\GlavSoft\MightyViewer) folder.

So you can export the data from one PC to another just by copying this file and placing it in the specified folder on the target PC.

It is recommended that both instances of MightyViewer on the source and target devices are stopped during the exporting procedure.

Please note, this is available only for licensed instances of MightyViewer and will not work with the trial version.

Some of my machines have multiple screens. Is there a way to specify which screen I’d like to see?

Unfortunately, there are no such functions now. As a temporary workaround, you may configure extra ports on the host side (TightVNC Server → Configuration → Extra ports) for mapping specified screen areas so you can monitor and control them separately.
