Download the attach “pcAQuickConnectDll.dll” file according to your Version.

Go to the Path of pcAnywhere

Backup the file of “pcAQuickConnectDll.dll”.

Replace the PCAQuickconnectDll.dll with the downloaded.

Note – If file is going access denied while replacing then stop the “Symantec PcAnywhere Host Service” and “Symantec Management Agent” Service.

12.6 is pcanywhere solution.    It is what is integrated with the Symantec Managment Platform. 

pcAnywhere Box is the full version that is stand alone and does not use the Symantec Managment Platform or Agent.
