Installing the Windows agent

To manage your devices in Absolute, you first need to download and install the Absolute agent on each device. After the agent is installed, it contacts the Absolute Monitoring Center to receive a unique identifier. A device record is then created in the database and the device information detected by the agent is made available in the Absolute console.

On Windows devices, you can install the Absolute agent in the following ways:

  • Direct installation: used to install the agent on individual devices not connected through a network. This method requires hands-on contact with each target device.
  • Batch installation: used to install the agent on multiple devices, either locally or remotely.
