From referring to the posts regarding 2.5.2 install kits, it is supposed to do the install to the user’s My Documents folder. This answered the first question as to why the install would default to the local Documents and Setting folder location.
I have a couple other questions:
- Are we supposed to run the install kits logged in as each user who might use it? I am running into an issue where I have to install for each user on a machine in general. The software does not show up in the Add/Remove of any users other than the one whoe installed and the .NET registry entries used to resolve any references to your assemblies are now located under HKEY_CURRENT_USER. So, if I install as Administrator and then log in as another user, that user cannot use or resolve references to GoDiagram components. If I install the kits again as that user, it works.
- Are all the assemblies supposed to be in the GAC? That would solve problem 1) probably. It appears that Northwoods.Go.dll is in the GAC and can be resolved by multiple users without installing multiple times. However, Northwoods.Go.Xml.dll, Northwoods.GoWeb.dll, Northwoods.GoWeb.Xml.dll do not show up in the GAC and cannot be resolved by anyone other than the user who installed the software.
I have ran into this issue on both Windows XP and Windows 2003 Server.
