The structure of the file for remote control
The management of remote control uses a file in INI format. This control file enables you to easily manage the runtime mode of an application as well as the messages displayed according to the mode. By default, this file is named WDUPDATE.NET.
WDADMINEXE allows you to easily manage the creation and the maintenance of this control file.
