The ActiveControl client software is installed using a normal Windows setup program. Simply run the supplied setup program and follow the on-screen instructions.E
ActiveControl has been designed to require zero client installation on each team member’s computer. We recommend that you install the ActiveControl client software to a network directory accessible by all of your team members. Once installed, you can simply distribute a shortcut to your team members.
When ActiveControl is installed on a local or network directory it creates the required files in a directory such as “C:\Program Files\Basis Technologies\ActiveControl\”. The ActiveControl.exe file will be located within this directory. This executable requires access to a sub-directory called “View Layouts” (so “C:\Program Files\Basis Technologies\ActiveControl\View Layouts\”. Within this sub-directory are a number of layouts for each type of control point.
This sub-directory structure needs to exist for a network or Citrix installation from the location where the ActiveControl.exe is started from.
It is important that when the ActiveControl.exe is run it is run in the installed directory as it requires the “View Layouts” sub-directory to run properly otherwise errors will occur. A shortcut that points to the ActiveControl.exe in this location will work ok.
Additionally, when creating a shortcut, you can choose to default the details for the ActiveControl domain controller that the client software will connect to.
For example, the following shortcut command-line defaults ActiveControl to connect to the SAP system with SAP Logon ID “Production Support Development”. The logon client will default to 100.ActiveControl
…\TE.exe SAPLOGON_ID=”Production Support Development” CLIENT=100
