Current version: 2020.01


Satellite Control*

Remote control and analysis of remote Windows computers connected with UNIVERSE. Processes can be started and monitored. An autonomously working Watchdog allows operation even without UNIVERSE.

(Win 7/8/8.1/10)


Satellite PPT*

Remote control of PowerPoint presentations with Office 2010 (and later versions) via UNIVERSE. It is also possible to trigger events in UNIVERSE during the course of a presentation.

*Satellites are additional tools (free of charge) that are also part of the UNIVERSE installer.

Information for owners of version 3

In order to continue using your license, it must be updated once from UNIVERSE 2019.02. This will be communicated to you via a note about the program start. The update can be performed via Help->License. This update requires an online connection.

All new licenses are eligible for 12 months of update. All existing licenses were dated 31/01/2018 as the earliest purchase date. So if you are have acquired your V3 license on 07/05/2018, you are still eligible to update until 07.05.2019. Do you have purchased your V3 license on 14/12/2017, a license no longer entitles you to new updates.

An update extension can be purchased through our shop and can be used immediately.

If the update period has expired, you can of course continue to use the last version valid for you without restriction.
