Premium Remote Control - Generate a new UID for a cloned device

f you encounter a scenario where a partner receives a Computer not found error when trying to connect using Premium Remote Control, or they report that when trying to connect to one device, they are connected to another, this can be corrected by generating a new UID for the ISL agent.

 

  1. Stop Premium Remote Agent Service service on the machine (go to command prompt and execute net stop isl_always_on)
  2. Open regedit and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ISL Online\ISL AlwaysOn 
    If you are using 64-bit Windows, the appropriate key is located in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\ISL Online\ISL AlwaysOn
  3. Delete the binary content key called uid
  4. Create a new binary content key called _ghost_ with content 01
  5. Start Premium Remote Agent Service service on the machine (go to command prompt and execute net start isl_always_on)
  6. Wait 4 hours for the Asset Collection to occur, or click Get Latest Assets on the Device Overview page
