Description simonbr 2003-08-30 21:57:49 UTC
In the installation set of the Windows version, add a batch file 
called "setupnet.bat" containing the line: 
setup -net
Comment 1 simonbr 2003-08-30 22:07:12 UTC
Simply double clicking this file is a much more convenient way to 
start the multi-user setup than opening a command prompt, cd-ing to 
the directory with the installation files, and typing "setup -net". 

It is also much easier to explain to younger users of Windows, who 
are unfamiliar with the command prompt (especially the "cd to the 
directory..." part is difficult to explain).

Comment 2 rblackeagle 2003-08-30 22:48:00 UTC
I agree that some such approach would be helpful.  Even easier would
be to do ask what directory they wanted the temporary installation
files placed in, then unzipping, then running setup.exe -net or
./setup -net and going through the usual steps (on a multi-user
system, asking for the password would help), then asking if they
wanted to run a user installation, pointing out that the folder for
the user installation should be something else and then, exiting out
of administrator mode, installing a user system.

Complicated as it sounds, it would be a fairly easy .bat or linux
script file to write and requires no changes in the coding.

I think for OOo 2.0 this batch file isn't needed any longer.

Comment 6 Andrea Pescetti 2006-01-05 21:00:22 UTC
I don't believe this is obsolete and I suggest reopening.

Every volunteer who tested the (Italian, in our case) 2.0.1-RCx versions had to
perform a "network install" in order not to mess with an existing OOo 2.0.0, as
the default install would have overwritten 2.0.0.

The workload to implement this is negligible and this would reduce the Network
Install instructions to: "Start the installation, extract files, then Cancel and
double-click on netsetup.bat".

In OOo 2.x we the parameter /a to have the chance to install an office beside an
existing office. I think this issue is very obsolet. Changing target: OOo 2.0 is

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
