Network installation






Network installation requires a network/floating license. The USB hardware key holds your network/floating license with a limited number of simultaneous users and should be plugged in to a PC running 24/7 or a server. The installed device drivers for the USB hardware key control startup requests from the users.

There are 2 network installation scenarios:
Install the DICOM viewer on each client PC

The installation software will install the DICOM viewer, the USB hardware key drivers, create firewall rules and needs to know the IP address of the server holding the USB hardware key.
The IP address can be passed using command-line argument '-IPxxx.xxx.xxx.xxx'.
The USB hardware key drivers are installed by default. To force installation of new drivers, use command-line argument '-hasp'.
Prevent installation of USB hardware key drivers with command-line argument '-nohasp'.
The installation can be performed silently with command-line argument '/verysilent'.

For example: "DicomViewerSetup.exe -IP10.0.4.12 -hasp /verysilent" installs the DICOM viewer and the USB hardware key drivers (default on), sets the IP address of the server (10.0.4.12) and it will be performed silently.
See the following document for a more detailed explanation of the installation procedure: network license installation


Install the DICOM viewer on the server and enable access for each user

The installation software will install the DICOM viewer, the USB hardware key drivers and create firewall rules on the server, administrator access is required.
Make 'DICOMviewer.exe' accessible for all users, the default installation folder is 'C:\Program Files (x86)\DICOMviewer'.
The drivers for the USB hardware key need to be installed on the users PC. The drivers will be installed automatically upon first start of the DICOM viewer.
The drivers can be installed manually. Install them silently by running "haspdinst.exe -i -nomsg" via the command-line (-i for installation of drivers, -nomsg for no messages) or distribute "HASPUserSetup.exe" for a GUI installation. These files are installed in folder 'HASPDriver' in the default installation folder of the DICOM viewer.
See the following document for a more detailed explanation of the installation procedure: network license installation

INI file settings
The administrator can preset a few settings and provide PACS details for each user. This is only available in the latter scenario, a single install of the DICOM viewer, accessable for all users. See INI file explanation.
