Frequently Asked Questions

In this section we will try to answer the most frequent questions

Orcus is completely written in Visual C#. The used IDE is Visual Studio 2015 Community and the GUI framework is WPF.

Orcus is not just one application but a lot of components which require different environments. The administration requires the .Net Framework 4.6.1, the GUI server the .Net Framework 4.5, the console server also requires the .Net Framework 4.5 but is mono compatible so it will also run on Linux/OSX systems. For the client, you can choose between the .Net Framework 3.5, 4.0 and 4.5. The Android app requires Android 4.4 or greater.

Orcus is not malware. Orcus is a remote administration tool which supports administrators to watch their computers. We don't support any kind of illegal use. When you install Orcus on your PC, you have to agree that you don't use Orcus for unauthorized access.

We support developers, you can find detailed tutorials about almost all plugin types in our developer section. Also, if you have any questions or if you need any assistance, we will be glad to help you.

One license is meant for one person. You can install Orcus with one license on 3 different computers. We can't prevent that you share your license with a good friend, but keep in mind that you need a new install when you change your hardware (e. g. CPU). We offer 3 installations with the idea that you want to install Orcus on your main computer, a virtual machine and you change your hardware one time. If you want to unregister all computers connected with your license, you can contact our support.

Yes, you can. Please contact our support, they will tell you what to do in order to register Orcus without the internet connection.
