This new version of the program from Window Book allows for the automatic updating of each workstation (without requiring a full installation) once the Primary Network/Server installation has been completed.
NOTE: If for any reason a full installation using the install routine is required on the workstations after the system has been set up, it will be indicated by an .ini setting made by the Server Installation for that particular version. (This is a very rare occurrence).
NOTE: The Workstation install will issue a warning if the .Ini file (WBIProducts.ini) is not found in the NetBookshelf.
In order to make this new system possible, some changes were made to the installers and the architecture of the Server/Workstation type of Installation.
The Installer itself now has three options rather than two, and with this upgrade it’s very important to do the correct type of install in the correct place, i.e. “Workstation” on the client/workstations and “Server” on the Server or primary machine (where the Main Program and (sometimes) the data are physically located.) If the program and data are on separate machines it will be necessary to designate one of the machines as the Primary or Server install for the purposes of this type of architecture.
This will translate into a new code in the machine’s WBIinstall.ini
