Administrative Installation

An administrative installation copies a source image of Z and I Emulator for Windows installation files onto a network drive. The resulting location of this source image is called the installation point. After you complete an administrative installation, any user connected to the network can install Z and I Emulator for Windows to their own workstation by pointing to the installation point and running the setup. An administrative installation offers two installation choices to users:
  • Installation directly to their system from the network server
  • Installation to run from the network server
To begin an administrative installation, disable the AutoPlay function on your system or simply close the Z and I Emulator for Windows welcome window when it opens. With the installation image in the drive:
  1. Open a command prompt and switch to the Z and I Emulator for Windows installation directory by typing
