Chapter 14. Rolling Out Contribute > Installing Contribute for Multiple Users

Installing Contribute for Multiple Users

It's one thing to install a software program for yourself; it's quite another to install the same program for a host of users. Depending on the size and network connectivity of your organization, you can take one of two approaches when rolling out Contribute:

  • Manual installation. If you're working with a relatively small group of Contribute users— and a number of separate Contribute packages have been purchased—it's probably easiest to distribute the CD-ROMs and have users install the program themselves. If you are concerned about their ability to perform the installation, or if security issues exist, you should install the software yourself one package at a time. Naturally, if your group is dispersed over a region or across the country, you probably need to distribute the CD-ROMs to the individuals and let them install the program.

  • Network installation. If your working group is networked, you can post the Contribute installer in an accessible location and have each user install from the server. This type of installation is a major time-saver for the IT department (or the group that is handling the installation) and can result in substantial cost savings. Although the technical requirements for handling this type of installation are minimal—it requires only that the user know the network path to the installer program—some novice users might balk at the unfamiliarity of not having a CD-ROM to insert.
