How to install the pascom desktop UC client on Windows, macOS and Linux.
System requirements: Windows 7, 8.1 or 10 (32 and 64bit) including the most up-to-date patch levels.
The Windows installation process does not require any admin privileges and be performed directly in the home-directory of the currently logged in user:
System requirements: Windows Server 2008 R2 64bit or higher
When using this installation method, the automatic pascom desktop client updates will be deactivated, even without setting the noUpdate command line option. You will need to download and deploy the newer clients versions manually.
(Optional) On the Microsoft Terminal Server it is possible to install the pascom desktop client directly in the programmes directory instead of the corresponding user’s home directory.
The disadvantage of this type of installation is that you will need to manually perform all pascom desktop client updates, as the updates require admin rights. The advantage of terminal server installations is that you can save upto ca. 100MB storage space per user.
