Brosix advanced setup

How can I install Brosix for all users on the computer?

Default Brosix Setup installs Brosix in Windows’s user home folder. This is done to allow installation for users that have no administrator rights on their Windows machines.

However, in a corporate environment it is common practice several users to share a Windows machine. For example Windows in Citrix, Windows via Remote Desktop Connection or Windows Terminal Services. In these cases it is preferred to install Brosix in one common place and all Windows users use Brosix from there. This is achieved with Brosix Advanced Setup.

Brosix Advanced Setup runs in administrator mode on the Windows machine. It installs Brosix in “Program Files”. During the installation you have an option to change the installation folder.

Windows user accounts can have limited access rights. They will still be able to use the common Brosix installation but will not be able to update this installation when there is a new Brosix version available. To allow automatic updates, Brosix Advanced Setup installs a special service, that will update Brosix when a new version is available even if all users have limited access rights. This eliminates the need of system administration for Brosix in a corporate environment.
