Upon installing a single-user version, you are asked for an installation
folder (by default C:\Program Files\LabelVision). With a multi-user
version, you are first asked for a Server Folder (which should reside
on a local server) to which the installation program will copy the
contents of the CD. Then, from each client PC, you browse (using
the Windows Explorer) to the Server Folder, double-click the file
Setup.exe and perform a client installation to the local client
hard disk (by default C:\Program Files\LabelVision). Note that users
of client PCs must have write-privileges to the Server Folder and
Both single-user and multi-user packages are capable of obtaining
and sharing data on a network, as well as printing to network printers.
However, a single-user package is also network-independent, and
can be started even if your network is down. A multi-user package
cannot be started if the network is down, as it cannot obtain a
license. Also, all multi-user clients share the same license files.
If one user terminates LabelVision abnormally, other users may be
temporarily unable to obtain new licenses and start the program.
For this reason, we do not recommend the use of multi-user packages
in production-printing environments (especially with a large number
of client PCs).
All multi-user licenses must run on the same LAN (local area network),
which must be up and running at all times for LabelVision to function
properly. Also, all client computers of a given multi-user installation
must be in the same building or office park.
