Using the MSI installer package to install the Compliance Accelerator client

Typically, you distribute the Compliance Accelerator client software by directing users to a central location from which they can run the MSI installer package. By default, the installer package for the Compliance Accelerator client software performs a per-user installation of the software. This type of installation does not permit other users of the computer to run the application. However, if you have administration privileges on the computer and want to permit all users to run the application, you can perform a per-machine installation.

To install the Compliance Accelerator client software

  1. Ensure that the configuration file AcceleratorClient.Exe.Config file is in the installation folder for the Compliance Accelerator client software.

  2. Do one of the following:

    • To perform a per-user installation, start the Compliance Accelerator installer package (Symantec Enterprise Vault Compliance Accelerator Client.msi).

    • To perform a per-machine installation, open a Command Prompt window and then type the following:

      msiexec /I "path_to/Symantec Enterprise Vault Compliance Accelerator Client.msi" TARGETDIR="install_path" ALLUSERS=1

      Where:

      path_to

      Specifies the path to the .msi file.

      install_path

      Specifies the path to the folder in which to create an Enterprise Vault Compliance Accelerator subfolder for the client software.

      For example, if the .msi file is located at the root of the D: drive, and you want to install the client software in the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Enterprise Vault Compliance Accelerator, you must type the following:

      msiexec /I "D:\Symantec Enterprise Vault Compliance Accelerator Client.msi" TARGETDIR="C:\Program Files (x86)" ALLUSERS=1

      Caution:

      If User Account Control (UAC) is enabled on your computer, you must open the Command Prompt window with administrator privileges.

  3. Follow the on-screen instructions.
