All GlobalSearch customers can leverage the client that best suits their needs (browser or desktop).  Windows users seeking to leverage the Desktop client (a .NET Framework client application) can easily deploy it from a web accessible package.   With the release of version 6.1 of GlobalSearch, the desktop client deployment has been updated and is deployed from a new, web accessible location.

Deployment

The GlobalSearch desktop client can be installed from:

C:\inetpub\wwwroot\Square9API\Desktop_Client\release\setup.exe

or 

http://localhost/square9api/desktop_client/release/setup.exe

http://servername/square9api/desktop_client/release/setup.exe

http://IPaddress/square9api/desktop_client/release/setup.exe

Cloud customers may deploy the desktop client using your specific tenant address:

https://yourc2instance.mysquare9.com/square9api/desktop_client/release/setup.exe

The client installer is a background process and requires no user input.  All of the configuration is defined by the server and the only thing required of the user is to run the setup executable (setup.exe).  During installation, a Square 9 application will present in the Windows Taskbar:

After the installation, GlobalSearch will attempt to start for the first time, prompting the user for Authentication:


As of version 6.1, the desktop client is intended to be a user client only.  Any admin functions are performed in the browser.

GlobalSearch desktop does not install automatically on the server.  Square 9 does not recommend using your server for client tasks.  Customers who wish to deploy the desktop client to the server can do so by following the steps outlined above.
