ArtisBrowser Manual

ArtisBrowser Installation

ArtisBrowser needs to be installed using the installer as provided by ArtistScope. Installers not authenticated by ArtistScope code signing should never be used. ArtisBrowser is not "portable" and will not run from a USB. Only by using the certified installer provided by ArtistScope can you be assured that the browser and its supporting services have been installed properly.

Remote/Silent Installation

While the installer can be run in silent mode, it is not recommended because no indication will be given of errors that may have caused the install to fail. To allow an install to be run in silent mode (no screens or dialogs), pass "/S" on the command line. For example:  "C:\output\setup.exe" "/S"

It is not recommended to deploy this installer across a network and install remotely because most deployment solutions fail to pass on full administrator rights throughout the procedure. To ensure that the Windows service is installed properly we strongly recommend that installation be performed manually so that a person can interpret an error message, especially when updating an existing installation because if the browser is in operation then some components will be in use and thus
impossible to update.

The only remote deployment solution that has been reported as being successful
is the Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM).

Please test deployment to one computer and check that the Reader runs properly.
