Windows > Device Enrollment (Adding Devices)

Windows Device Management

Updated on August 3rd, 2020

Miradore supports the management of devices running Windows 10 or a 64-bit version of Windows 7 / 8. The supported versions are Windows 7 SP1 and above and Windows 8.1 or newer.

In a technical sense, Miradore supports two management methods for Windows devices.

  • Management through Miradore Client software (also referred as to Light)
  • Management through Miradore Client & MDM work account (also referred as to Full)

Windows 7 and 8 computers should be managed in the Light mode, because they don’t support the MDM work account. This also means that some Miradore features are not available for Windows 7 & 8 computers. See the table below for details.

Supported features by Windows management method

Feature / Management method Light Full
Windows 7 & 8 support Yes
Windows 10 support Yes Yes
Hardware inventory Yes Yes
Software inventory Yes
Remote actions: wipe and reboot Yes
Configuration profiles Yes
Software deployment Yes Yes
Business policies Yes Yes
Patch management Yes Yes

Limitations

Software deployment, software inventory and remote reboot are not supported on devices running Windows 10 Home.

Enrollment instructions

You can find step-by-step instructions for enrolling Windows-based devices from here:

Miradore Client is pushed to Windows 10 devices automatically

Miradore deploys a Miradore Client automatically to all Windows 10 devices after a successful MDM work profile enrollment. The client installation enables more extensive hardware inventory data collection and also adds support for the patch management.

Notice that the automatic client deployment isn’t supported for Windows 10 Home edition, but you can download the client installer from your Miradore site and run the installer manually in such devices.

Miradore Client for Windows doesn’t support 32-bit versions of Windows, but you can manage devices with 32-bit Windows 10 using the MDM work profile.
