Overview
WINDEV proposes several types of setup for a WINDEV application:
The different types of setup

Individual setup

The individual setup consists in creating a setup program that will be installed on each user computer via a setup media.
Schema for the individual setup
This setup mode is compatible with:
  • data files in HFSQL Classic format installed locally on the user computer,
  • data files in HFSQL Classic format installed in network and accessible from the user computer,
  • data files in HFSQL Client/Server format installed on a server.

Network setup (with automatic update)

The network setup consists in creating a setup program that will be installed on a server.
All the user computers that want to install the application will start the application setup via the network.
Schema for the network setup
If an update is available on the application server, the application update will be proposed when the application is started on the user computer.
A network setup allows for an extensive check of the user computers (versions deployed, mandatory updates, disconnection of users, ...).
This setup mode is compatible with:
  • data files in HFSQL Classic format installed locally on the user computer,
  • data files in HFSQL Classic format installed in network and accessible from the user computer,
  • data files in HFSQL Client/Server format installed on a server.
Versions 22 and later
Note: The setup found on the application server can be updated even if a client application is currently updated.
New in version 22
Note: The setup found on the application server can be updated even if a client application is currently updated.
Note: The setup found on the application server can be updated even if a client application is currently updated.

HTTP setup (with automatic update)

The HTTP setup consists in creating a setup program that will be installed on a Web server.
All the user computers that want to install the application will start the application setup via an HTTP URL.
If an update is available on the Web server, the application update will be proposed when the application is started on the user computer.
Schema for the HTTP setup

Multi-site setup (with automatic update)

The multi-site setup allows you to install an application on several different sites (a site can represent a subsidiary for example).
The multi-site setup consists in creating a setup program that will be installed on a Web server.
All the sites that want to install the application will start the application setup via an HTTP URL. In this case, the setup program will be installed on a server of the site.
All the user computers that want to install the application will start the setup via the network.
This setup combines the benefits of the network setup and HTTP setup by allowing a large-scale deployment as well as a granular control of local setups.
Schema for the multi-site setup
If an update is available on the Web server, the application is automatically updated on the application server.

Push network setup

The network setup consists in creating a setup program that will be installed on a server. The setup will be performed from the server, by the network administrator on the user computers selected by WDAdminExe.
Schema for the Push setup
A Push setup can be updated either in Push mode, or as part of a network setup.
