Deploying an Application : Installation type considerations

Installation type considerations

The WebClient installation types described how an end user can install WebClient either as a Administrator instance or a personal instance. Your WebClient deployment might support only Administrator installs, or it might support both Administrator and personal installs. (Because the installer determines what type of installation to perform based on the person's privileges, the installer always creates an Administrator instance for an end user with Administrator privileges.) Each installation type that you support has requirements for you to consider.
Note: Progress Software Corporation recommends that you do not have both installation types of the same WebClient application on a single machine. If several users on the same machine use a WebClient application, a single Administrator installation uses less resources.
