This Zetadocs technical note applies to:

  • Zetadocs for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 1.2


When installing Zetadocs for Microsoft Dynamics NAV v1.2 in a terminal services environment, the outlook add-in module is installed and enabled for all terminal services users.

After the installation, terminal services users that compose a message in Outlook and add an attachment will be offered to the options to convert the attachment to PDF by the following dialog:


The default settings for the Zetadocs Outlook add-in are not meant to be used in a terminal services environment where some users are not using Zetadocs. This is a known issue in this release.


When installing Zetadocs for Microsoft Dynamics NAV on a terminal server, please do the following:

  1. Log onto the Terminal Server machine locally as an administrator.
  2. Bring up the command prompt.
  3. Navigate to the following folder on your Zetadocs CD: Zetadocs NAV Client\ISSetupPrerequisites\{DBECCFED-E0C9-4EE7-A50B-8EF2FAA35AC1}\
  4. Type the following:
                change user /install
  5. Type the following:
                setup. exe /V" ADDINS=0 /L*v %TEMP%\ZDClientInstall.log"
  6. This runs the Zetadocs PDF installer for all users with the Outlook add-in disabled.
  7. Run through this installer, as you would normally.
  8. When the installer is complete, type the following at the command line:
                change user /execute
  9. Exit the command prompt.
  10. Execute the installer on your Zetadocs for Microsoft Dynamics NAV CD and run through the installer UI as you would normally.
