Installing for Users with Restricted Rights

To install EXTRA! X-treme directly, users must have administrative rights; however, if the Attachmate Installer Service is installed on client computers, administrators can distribute EXTRA! X-treme or later patches or service packs from Management & Control Services (MCS) to users with restricted rights. The Installer Service allows users with restricted rights in Windows to access the distributions page in MCS. Alternatively, you can make EXTRA! available to restricted users by advertising the installation or through group policy.

Administrative privileges are required to install the Installer Service on client computers but, after it is installed, all further installations can be managed through MCS.

Note The Attachmate Installer Service requires Microsoft Windows Installer version 2.0, which is included with Windows XP. For your convenience, Attachmate has included the Windows Installer for other operating systems on the Full-featured Emulation Options CD.

If the correct version of Windows Installer is not present, it can be installed either before or after installing the Installer Service. On the Full-featured Emulation Options CD, click Install EXTRA! Options and Connections, and then click Microsoft.

To install the Attachmate Installer Service
  1. At each client computer, insert the CD labeled Full-featured Emulation Options into the CD drive.

    If the setup utility does not run automatically, browse to the CD root directory and double-click autosetup.exe.

  2. Choose an installation language.

  3. Choose Attachmate Installer Service.

  4. On the Welcome screen, click Next.

  5. After reading the displayed message, click Next.

  6. Read and accept the displayed license agreement, and then click Next.

  7. Respond to the subsequent prompts.

    After installation, the Attachmate Installer Service runs as a Windows service.
