Open Manageability Developer Tool Kit

Note: We are now developing MeshCommander, a web based software for Intel® AMT with the goal of being able to manage Intel® AMT entirely from within a web browser and run on many operating systems. MeshCommander is on it's way to replacing the MDTK below.

Open Manageability Developer Tool Kit is an open source set of tools to help designers, developers and testers understand the benefits of Intel® vPro™ technology. The kit is an excellent complement to the Intel® Active Management Technology Software Development Kit (Intel® AMT SDK). The kit runs on Microsoft* Windows* .NET* 2.0 environment and offers a set of tools to quickly make use of all of the features of Intel AMT through the use of a simple developer and tester oriented user interfaces. Included in the kit is a sample, evaluator/developer/tester oriented console (Manageability Commander Tool) and remote agent (Manageability Outpost Tool) along with a set of tutorial videos to help understand how the kit works and how it can be best used to assist in the development of new applications.


  • Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) version 2.0 or later.
  • Some provided tools may be run on an Intel AMT 1.0 system but with some limitations.
  • Only Intel AMT systems using the Basic provisioning model are supported, with limited support for the Standard and Advanced provisioning models.
  • The user must have correctly provisioned the Intel AMT machines before using the Manageability Developer Tool Kit, and all necessary platform drivers must be installed.
  • Some features require Intel® Management Engine Interface driver installed (Manageability Outpost Tool remote agent service for example)
  • Windows* XP* Service Pack 2 (or later) with Microsoft .NET* Framework 2.0

Tutorial Videos

To help, we have a YouTube playlist with a set of tutorial videos covering many aspects of using Intel® AMT with the DTK. The first two videos provide an overview of how to use Commander and a good way to get started.

Cloud Management

The most important tool in the DTK is Manageability Commander. It's a console tool that supports management of Intel AMT computers on the local network and over the Internet using Both the DTK and Meshcentral are open source and both projects share lots of code. The original idea behind Meshcentral was to make a web based version of Commander, but the project as since grown way beyond this initial goal. is free to use and allows management of a wide range of devices and operating systems (Windows / OSX / Android / Raspberry Pi...) . Intel AMT is not required, but can make use of it if available. Since it's open source, you can launch your own instance of the web site on your own server, for information


These tools are community supported. Your help and feedback are very much appreciated. The first source of support should be the Intel® Business Client Software Development Forums. The Intel® vPro Expert Center is also an outstanding source of support for all technologies related with Intel® vPro.

I am using Version 2.0 with AMT 8.1.51. I cannot enable the Remote Desktop settings. The state is disabled and The right box key is grayed. I cannot enable the KVM. Any suggestion?
When I tried to configure it using WINRM, I got error
The client cannot connect to the destination specified in the request. Verify that the service on the destination is running and is accepting requests.  
Using the browser on the local pc, I can connect to http://IntelStandardManageability_IP:16992

This forum post was very helpful (unlike intel) in getting the DTK working on a 64bit system:

I can confirm the corflags trick works.

Sorry, the DTK does not currently support Vista 64. I will place a request in our tracking list for this in Windows 7 for the future. We currently do not have an update for the DTK scheduled in 2009.

The current version installs OK under Vista x64, but most of the apps (including AMT Commander) crash when started.

Is there a version of the DTK for x64 operating systems?

Thank you!
