2.3. Enterprise Network Client Setup (7.x)

To perform a full install or upgrade install, browse to the network share or other location that you chose in Server Step 5. Then, either run the EXE installer there, or copy the installer and the INI file to the client computer and run the EXE installer there. Either way, in Vista or Windows 7 or later, you should right-click the EXE installer and select Run as administrator; in Windows XP, you can just double-click the installer.

If the application software is already installed on this client and you just need to hook it into the network, you can use a shorter procedure if you wish. See Changing 7.x Standalone Workstation to Enterprise Client.

For Enterprise Networks, your license specifies the number of clients you may activate. The installer will try a client activation using your server and Activation ID as shown in the Palisade_NetworkClient.ini file. If the activation succeeds, then when the user runs the software it will start up without any licensing messages.

The activation could fail during install if your server or Activation ID is incorrect, or if the licensed number of users have already been activated, or if your server is unreachable. The software will still be installed, but a message will tell you that the client could not be activated. To fix this, on the client click Start » All Programs » Palisade DecisionTools and then select the application. In the application, click Help » License Manager and then Activate.

Reminder: If you later give this user a new computer, or reassign the software to a different user, you must first deactivate the license on this workstation through License Manager. That returns the license to the pool of available licenses on your server.
