Software deployment overview
This page provides an overview and comparison of the two installers available for deploying the Rimscout client on user devices: the per-user installer and the per-machine installer.
Rimscout offers two distinct installers for deploying the Rimscout client:
- Per-user installer: Ideal for quick tests, network assessments, or scenarios where automatic updates are desired.
- Per-machine installer: Ideal for deployment on multiple devices, offering control over the client update process.
The two installers differ in several key aspects, as outlined in the table below:
|Installation context||Installed per-user in Local AppData||Installed machine-wide in Program Files|
|Updates||Updates automatically||Updated only via patches|
|Admin rights||Not required||Required for installation|
|Packet size||Large (~95MB as ZIP-archive). Includes the .NET framework.||Small (~12MB). Downloads .NET Framework during installation.|
|Firewall rules||Configured automatically during installation||Must be configured manually|
