The Hyland Office Products installer is distributed as a ClickOnce deployment installer or as a standard executable installer (MSI). While either installer can be used to install the same functionality, the following differences should be considered when deciding which installation option is best for your organization:

ClickOnce installer

Standard (MSI) installer

After running the Hyland Office Products Deployment installer you must run the separate Hyland Office Integration Dependencies installer on each workstation before the packages are deployed to those workstations. This installer installs the prerequisites required to use the Office and Outlook integration modules on the client workstations. These prerequisites are not included in the deployment packages and cannot be deployed using ClickOnce.

Prerequisites are installed automatically as long as the setup.exe executable is used for installation.

Deployment packages can be installed on the local workstation by any user with rights sufficient to access the deployment package on the deployment server.

The installer must always be run on the local workstation by a user who is an Administrator on that workstation.

Deployment packages can be updated to a new version without first uninstalling the module from each workstation. The new version is automatically updated on each workstation the next time the module is accessed.

In order to upgrade to a new version, the old version must be uninstalled from each workstation before the new version can be installed.

Microsoft Office documents opened using the Web Client cannot be revised using the Office Business Application modules if those modules were deployed using ClickOnce.

Microsoft Office documents opened using the Web Client can be revised using the Office Business Application modules if those modules were installed using the standard (MSI) installer.

A new instance must be created for different language and culture settings, and those settings are applied to all users who access that deployment instance.

Language and culture settings can be changed for each workstation installed to.

Document Templates cannot be used in the Web Client with the Office Business Application modules if those modules are installed using the ClickOnce installer.

Document Templates can only be used in the Web Client with the Office Business Application modules when those modules are installed using the standard installer (MSI).

The ClickOnce installer cannot be used to install the 64-bit Hyland Office add-ins.

The 64-bit versions of the Hyland Office add-ins for Microsoft Office can be installed using the standard installer (MSI) for 64-bit environments.

Note:

You cannot install some components using ClickOnce and others using the standard (MSI) installer. Once you have installed a component, that same deployment method must be used to install additional components.

This chapter covers installation using either method:
