Setting the installation path for Messageware Products

This article applies to the following products:
     Messageware OWA Suite 2007

 

SUMMARY

 

When installing any of the Messageware Products, administrators have the option to select a custom target path to perform the installation on an Exchange 2007 server. This article provides information pertaining to this feature introduced in the Messageware OWA Suite 2007.

 

MORE INFORMATION

 

When any one of the Messageware products is installed for the first time on an Exchange 2007 server, the installation program prompts the administrator to select the target location for the installation of Messageware files. By default this path is set to \Program Files\Messageware and can be changed by clicking on the browser button.

 

After the first product has been successfully installed, the target path preference is saved to the registry. Additional Messageware products that are installed on this Exchange server are required to be installed to the configured target path.

 

Similarly, when the products are removed form the Exchange server, the last product to be un-installed will remove the preference settings of the target path from the registry.

 

We strongly recommend not to update this preference setting in the registry directly. All products must share the same path due to sharing of common files.
