Installing the Full Client

You can install the desktop client with the installer provided on the Webspace Server computer in the folder where you publish the Webspace files to be hosted by your IIS or Apache server, or from the Webspace install folder, which is the C:\Program Files\Proficy\Proficy Webspace\Web\Clients folder by default.

  1. Obtain the client installer from the Webspace Server computer in the directory where you publish the Webspace files to be hosted by your IIS or Apache server, the DVD in the WebspaceServer subfolder, the Webspace install folder, which is by default the C:\Program Files\Proficy\Proficy Webspace\Web\Clients folder.
  2. Copy this file to the client computer.
  3. Double-click the .exe file to start the install. For non-administrators, double-click the proficy-client.exe file to install. For administrators, double-click the proficy-client.windows.exe file.
    The proficy-client.exe is installed under the user’s User Profile and can only be run by the user who installed it. The proficy-client.windows.exe is installed under the Program Files (x86) directory and can be run by all users on the computer. Only the proficy-client.windows.exe install supports the automatic client update; this is because administrator rights are required to install the update service.
