  1. Hey, this is not working, it does not take the password field and still asks for password after launching anydesk.

    Usually for a connection from cmd you would execute:

    echo {PASSWORD} | anydesk.exe {USERNAME} –with-password

    However if you use this commands in the URL field, echo is not recognized. It works from CMD.

    The result of using your proposed line of code is the same that if you use just the second part of the string I pasted (anydesk.exe {USERNAME} –with-password) in CMD

    1. may your experience is based on a free version, with a licensed anydesk it’s fine, otherwise I probably wouldn’t have written this post.
      enjoy it.
