Technical Details
Open Dental launches VistaDent.exe with command line parameters.
VistaDent.exe -first="John" -last="Doe" -id="1589" -DOB="1980-12-15" -sex="m"

Remote desktop enhancement for enterprise users: In version 16.2.38 and 16.3, the VistaDent bridge can be used with the RemoteExecuter.exe for remote sessions.

  • The Path of file to open should contain the path to RemoteExecuter. The website for downloading the software is www.mqtechnologies.com.
  • Enter the path of the program to launch, like VistaDent.exe, in the Optional command line arguments field.

The optional command line arguments are then passed to the remotely connected computer and the VistaDent.exe path is found on the local computer instead of the remote computer.
