Installing the CAPSYS Capture browser-hosted web client

Issue:  CAPSYS Capture browser hosted Web Client will not install.


Resolution:  The default installation method of the web client is for the end user to access the CAPSYS Capture Web site and have the web client control download and install automatically. For this to work the user must be logged in to the workstation as an administrative user.

Note: the CAPSYS Capture web site must be added to Internet Explorer as a trusted site, with security set to low, regardless of the client installation method. 


An alternate method would be to locate on the web server (the default installation location is C:\Inetpub\CAPSYS) and extract the web client installer, ClientSetup.exe. ClientSetup.exe can then be used to install the web client using a logon script.  An example script using a VB Script file and ClientSetup.exe: could look something like:

Option explicit
dim oShell
set oShell= Wscript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
oShell.Run "runas /user:Domain\Administrator ""ClientSetup.exe /s"""
WScript.Sleep 100
'Replace the string yourpassword~ below with
'the password used on your system. Include tilde
oShell.Sendkeys "yourpassword~"

Note: This script can be assigned as a logon script through Group Policy.
