How do I access the legacy desktop console?

As of version 6.0, the CurrentWare desktop console has been migrated to run the new CurrentWare web console. As it is a new feature addition, there is an additional cost to gain full access to the web console. Please see the change in licensing to change to the web console.

You still have full access to the desktop console to perform CurrentWare operations. Launch it from the following location:

C:\Program Files (x86)\CurrentWare\cwConsole\cwConsole.exe

Creating a shortcut on your desktop

You can also right-click that cwConsole.exe and add it to your desktop for easier access.
