Per User Installation and Per Machine Installation
In Per User Installation, the install is performed 100% on the local system. Further, this install is intended to serve only the current logged on user of the system/workstation and will be installed under the user’s application data folder (instead of Programs Files folder) and no elevated permission is required (This is known as per user installation). So, there won’t be a prompt from UAC to allow this install unless you change the install directory to say, Programs Files which will warrant an elevated permission/UAC prompt. If the same system is used by multiple users, each one needs to install the add-in on their profile with the default installation folder location.
Per Machine Installation: If you have the need to have a single install that serves all users of the system (i.e., per machine installation, which technically means the files will be installed under Program files folder and the add-in will be registered under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE registry hive rather than HKEY_CURRENT_USER), request the Citrix/Terminal Server version of the setups from us to perform a per machine installation.
Step 1. Run the PdfAttachmentExtractorSetup.exe to start the installation. Click ‘Next‘ to Continue.
Step 2. Select the appropriate destination folder where the application files will be installed. If you change the default folder path, please make sure you have appropriate permission. (Note: by default, it will be installed under your application data folder)
Step 3. Click ‘Next’ to continue with the files extraction. It just takes a few minutes to complete the whole copying process.
Step 4. Click ‘Finish’. This ends the files installation process in your system.
