The program needs to be installed on the server.
The installation needs to be run on each workstation selecting Network Workstation as the installation type.
The program needs to be registered on one workstation.
Forms Online is a server-based application. You must therefore install Forms Online on a network server in the same way as you would on a standalone system. You can then run the installation on each workstation and select the Network Workstation option when asked to select the installation type. This will create a shortcut on the local workstation.
Forms Online requires a network drive to be mapped. It will not be possible to run the program over a network without a mapped network drive letter. If you are in any doubt please contact your network administrator.
