When launching the Ignition applications, the shortcut and application data are being installed to the individual users profile folders and desktop on our Win7 machines.
This is causing each user to download their own copy of each application on shared workstations.
Is there a way to change the client settings to set up the shortcut (icons) and the application data in the ‘All Users’ or shared space in Win7?
If you still need it you can try to run this (as Administrator):
javaws.exe -system -shortcut -silent c:\path\to\project.jnlp
javaws.exe is usually found in c:\windows\system32
project.jnlp is the file downloaded when you click launch on a project. Alternatively you can use those links:
Windowed JNLP: http://IP:PORT/main/system/launch/client/PROJECT_NAME.jnlp
Full-Screen JNLP: http://IP:PORT/main/system/launchfs/client/PROJECT_NAME.jnlp
Applet URL: http://IP:PORT/main/web/applet/client/PROJECT_NAME
Before that you may want to clear the java cache (javaws -clearcache).
