Downloading and installing

The software can be downloaded using the links below. To download the files, right click on each link below and select to save a copy of each. (Eg 'Save target as...')

Since Microsoft keeps changing how their installer works on their various versions of Windows, I provide a number of ways of installing...

Installation method #1

Try this first. This should work across most versions of Windows, even up to Windows 10. Download and run this file:

Installation method #2

This method works better on older versions of Windows such as Win 95, 98 ME, 2000, XP

There are three files to download. You must download them onto your computer before you can install RemoteSign.

Setup.exeVisual Basic installer
RemoteSign.CABThe actual program, plus sample files etc
SETUP.LSTInstallation information used by SETUP

Once you have downloaded all three files to your machine, run the Setup.exe file and follow the on-screen prompts. Note, in order to get the latest version, you should also download RemoteSign.exe and overwrite the one delived by this older installer.

Installation method #3

Use this method if method #1 fails. Newer versions of Windows such as new fixpacks of XP, Vista, etc. already contain most of the DLL and OCX files needed, so you can simply place the executable in a folder and run it from there.

RemoteSign.zipZip file of the files you need, including sample files and sounds. Just unzip them in a folder and run RemoteSign.exe

Running under Windows 8 and above

If you are having probems launching Remotesign do this:
In File Explorer, right click on RemoteSign.exe
Select Properties
Select campatability tab
Run the Campatability Troublshooter
When it asks to test the program, click the test the program button, When it launches correctly, have it save the compatability settings.

Security warning

Since RemoteSign has to listen and communicate over networks to work, you may get a warning from Windows that it attempting to access the network. This is OK and you should allow it to do so.

Windows blocking either the installer or the program
If Windows does not want to let the program run, override that and force it to run. See here for more information.


This RemoteSign is not spyware. There is some other program called remotesign.exe - that is not from me and is unrelated. This RemoteSign connects to other copies of RemoteSign and accesses the Web during registration only. When you set RemoteSign to wait for in incoming connection, or when you try to connect to another machine, your firewall may alert you that RemoteSign is attempting to do so. That is fine and needs to be allowed to do so.
