Performing a Multiple-User Network Installation
In general, you’ll perform a network installation of QuoteWerks as follows:
1.Run the main installer (qwsetup.exe) one of the computers on your network.
2.When the installation program asks where you’d like to install QuoteWerks, choose your network drive (cannot be a root share).
Once this shared network installation has finished, you can set up other computers on the network to use it by following these steps:
1.Going to the other computers on the network
2.Navigating to the QuoteWerks directory on the network
3.Running the node-installation program (nsetup.exe).
This node-installation program will copy and register the necessary files (*.dll,*.ocx) to the machine's local \Windows\System directory, register them, and create the icons necessary to run QuoteWerks from that computer workstation on the network.
Network Installation Instructions
1.From a workstation, log in as the network ADMINISTRATOR, or equivalent user.
2.Follow the installation instructions for a single-user installation, specifying an installation directory that is located on your file server. For example, you might install QuoteWerks to the drive and directory F:\QuoteWerks.
3.After selecting the location to install QuoteWerks, follow the rest of the installation prompts.
To set up additional computers on the network to use this network installation of QuoteWerks, run the node installation program nsetup.exe, located in the network \QuoteWerks directory, for each computer on the network. This node-installation program will copy and register the necessary files (*.dll,*.ocx) to the machine's local \Windows\System directory, register them, and create the icons necessary to run QuoteWerks from that computer workstation on the network.
Important Notes for Installing QuoteWerks on More than 1 PC
If you want to install QuoteWerks onto a remote PC (like a home computer or laptop), you’ll need to generate special remote License Keys to activate these remote PC installations of QuoteWerks. This will allow those installations to share quotes with the network installation of QuoteWerks. Please refer to Laptops and Remote Locations for information on how to generate these special remote License Keys, as well as how to set up laptop installations.
