2.2. Concurrent Network Client Setup (6.x)

If you have a 7.x network, see Concurrent 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 6.x Standalone Workstation to Concurrent Client.

There is no limit to the number of client installs. The client installer doesn't need a connection to your server at install time. Instead, the installer copies the server information from the .ini file to the System Registry. After install, that file is not used.

After the first client install, run the client to make sure that the server and client setups are correct. To do this, on the client click Start » All Programs » Palisade DecisionTools and select the shortcut for the software.

If you have to click Select License, the end user will need to do that also, because the license selection applies only to the user who is currently running.

At run time, the client software reads the System Registry to find the server information. If the information copied from the Palisade_NetworkClient.ini file is incorrect, the client software will say that it cannot reach the server. To correct this information on the client, see How do I change port numbers or server names on existing Concurrent Network clients?
