Push Installation using MSI

Where installation of new software is managed by a central IT team and installers are pushed out within an administration framework, installation via a native MSI installer (Microsoft Windows Installer) is an advantage. This is especially true for Internet Explorer where installation of a plug-in requires administration rights.

 

You can download an MSI installer (Microsoft Windows Installer) file for Authentic Browser from the Altova website. This file is an executable installer file (with a .exe extension) that installs the Authentic Browser plug-in in all the supported browsers currently installed on the client machine. Currently supported browsers are: Microsoft Internet Explorer 32-bit and 64-bit, Mozilla Firefox.

 

 

Installation

Download the MSI installer file to the administration server and include it in your administrative procedures for installing to client machines. The plug-in will be installed (by default to the folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\Altova\AuthenticBrowserPlugin\…) and integrated in the currently installed supported browsers in one step. Selective installation for different browsers is possible via the Custom Installation dialog.

 

For silent installation, use the command line input parameter /q.

 

The Add/Remove Programs list on a client machine will show the installed browser edition.

 

 

MSI versions

There is an MSI installer file for each supported language (English, German, Spanish, Japanese), each trusted/untrusted type, and each 32-bit/64-bit browser-type. So, for example, there will be one MSI installer file for English Trusted 32-bit browsers, another for English Trusted 64-bit browsers, another for English Untrusted 32-bit browsers, and so on.
