Multi-User License Deployment on Windows

Multi-User License Deployment on Windows / Appendix A: Multi-User Manager / General Notes

General Notes

The GestionnaireMultiposte_Antidote11.exe application, which can be downloaded from your Multi-User Client Portal, is used to create the ReseauAntidote.mst and ReseauConnectix.mst files. All the parameters of the deployment configuration are contained in these files. The command lines that launch the deployment of Antidote and Connectix refer to these files. The specified configuration also creates the files ReseauAntidote.ini and ReseauConnectix.ini automatically, although these files are also contained in the corresponding MST files.

Upon installation of Antidote, the ReseauAntidote.mst file assigns the completed installation to the call of the MSI installer. The installation also extracts the ReseauAntidote.ini file from the ReseauAntidote.mst file, and then copies it into the Antidote folder, which thereby has access to the configuration. Creation of the ReseauAntidote.mst and ReseauAntidote.ini allows the following information to be specified:

  • The first name and last name of the network administrator
  • The name of the company or organization
  • The serial number
  • The quota code
  • Whether the administrative installations being performed are local or shared (for use from the server, or run from source)
  • The interface language
  • For each of the personal dictionaries that can be managed in Antidote 11:
    • Its name and location
    • Whether it will be read/write or read-only
    • Whether it will be activated, deactivated, or non-deactivatable by default (If it is deactivated, the user will still see it in the list of personal dictionaries and can activate it as required, see Appendix B: Personal Dictionaries.)
  • Antidote’s quick start configuration
  • Personalization (questions that are put to each user when Antidote is first launched)
  • Whether the inappropriate content filter is forced, prevented or offered to the user
  • Whether access to external searches is forced, prevented or offered to the user
  • Whether the Download Assistant can be used to get updates for Antidote and Connectix

Upon installation of Connectix, the ReseauConnectix.mst file assigns the completed installation to the call of the MSI installer. The installation also extracts the ReseauConnectix.ini file from the ReseauConnectix.mst file, and then copies it into the Connectix folder, which thereby has access to the configuration. Creation of the ReseauConnectix.mst and ReseauConnectix.ini allows the following information to be specified:

  • Whether the administrative installations being performed are local or shared (for use from the server, or run from source)
  • The interface language
  • Whether the Download Assistant can be used to get updates for Antidote and Connectix
  • Configuration of the Connectix Agent (the Antidote icon in the notification area)
  • Configuration of Anti-Oops! (which launches Antidote’s corrector when an email is sent and detects forgotten attachments)
  • Configuration of the Antidote Toolbar, which appears with certain applications (e.g. Internet Explorer, Notepad, Wordpad, etc.)
  • Which application integrations are forced, prevented or optional for each Antidote user. For more details, click on the “More information” button opposite each option visible in the Mutiuser Manager. Given that some programs must be installed at machine level, you can either force or prohibit their integration.
  • The Multi-User Client Portal is your single portal for your serial number, your quota code and your download links to Antidote 11 and its modules.
  • When you place an order for new workstations to be added to your license, Druide will send you a new License Agreement. The quota code must be used for all new installations. The Multiuser Manager must be used to deploy this new license agreement.
