Install "Palm Desktop 4" for all users

I'm trying out some software that lets you sync, however the vendor's application apparently only works with Palm Desktop 4.1.4 (HotSync Manager 4.1.0).

Does this version install for "All Users"? Because I can see the system tray icon under the user I installed as, but when I sign on as a different user (local or domain) the icon's not there, so it doesn't appear to be installed for "All users".

The standard installation program installs only for the current user as far as I know.
You could try using registry editor to export the branch:

   HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\U.S. Robotics

Then move the shortcuts (Palm Desktop and Hotsync) to the All Users -folder and import the registry file you exported for each additional user either manually or using a login script.

Hi,

If it's an MSI, you can install the package using MSI for all users as follows:

MSIEXEC /i <packagename> /qb ALLUSERS="1"

Nb. Make sure the installing user has elevated privileges.

Regards,
