This Zetadocs technical note applies to:

  • Zetadocs PDF 5 and later

Summary

This technical note describes how to install the Zetadocs PDF application on a Terminal Server so that the Zetadocs Client and Office 2007 addins are available to all users.

More information

In Zetadocs PDF 5 and later, the following components of the Zetadocs Client application can be used in a Terminal Services environment:

  • Zetadocs Client
  • Outlook 2007 extensions
  • Word 2007 addin
  • Excel 2007 addin

To install the Zetadocs PDF application on a Terminal Server, please do the following:

  1. Log onto the Terminal Server machine locally as an administrator.
  2. Bring up a command prompt.
  3. Type the following:
    change user /install
  4. This puts the Terminal Server into install mode.
  5. Still at the command prompt, change to the folder that contains the setup.exe file.

    Type the following:
                setup. exe /V" ALLUSERS=1 /L*v %TEMP%\ZDClientInstall.log"

  6. This runs the Zetadocs PDF installer for all users.
  7. Run through the installer UI as you would normally.
  8. When the installer is complete, type the following at the command line:
                change user /execute

Changes need to be made to the registry keys to ensure that the Office 2007 addins will be activated correctly for all users.
