I have always when installed KF .net pressed the install for all tag.

now, when using a different account on this system and started the iconchoicer2.kix, kixforms started installing itself.

and actually as I wrote this, it failed as it couldn't find the msi from my %temp%

shawn, pleeaase, fix this.

k, canceled the install, it started again, canceled again and after third time, it stopped and after some seconds, the form appeared.

thus, the installer indeed is screwed up.

kf itself works as if it was installed per machine but the installer acts as it was installed per-user

Hi Shawn,

Any chance this will be addressed in the next version?
If not how can kixforms.net be installed manually seeing as there are two files that need to be registed? I'm very close to deploying an admin tool to a few users but don't want them to see the "Installing KiXforms.net.." every time they launch the app after each subsquent logon.

idk - are you actually experiencing this odd behavior yourself - I have yet to really experience it. My (our) best guess is that this appears when one has a file locked (like if your running ASE and it has the DLL locked and one runs the msi), or if the CHM file is open while installing.

maybe its about time I create a stand-alone Kixforms.msi installer now - that just installs Kixforms without the developer stuff.

Maybe that and a non msi package with only the files and the chm for manual registration.

Btw. can you tell me how to do this manually? regsvr32 fails of course Confused

Here's the manual procedure (the one that I'm aware of anyways) ...

1) Copy Kixforms.System.dll to system32

2) Locate regasm.exe on your target system. Its prolly not in your path - its prolly somewhere in the .net distrib. Then I copy it to system32.

3) Run the following command:

regasm %systemroot%\system32\kixforms.system.dll /tlb /codebase
