Download and Install the Launcher
It's good practice to download and install the Vision Client Launcher every time you install a new release of Ignition. The Vision Client Launcher is a separate application and is not part of an Ignition release, so it's important not to have an outdated Vision Client Launcher shortcut residing on your desktop. Each time you install a new version of Ignition, download and install the Vision Client Launcher, then let the install process create a new desktop shortcut for you automatically.
The Vision Client Launcher can now be installed as an "all user" application on a Windows operating system providing launcher acess to all users on the same machine from a single installation. The first time the Vision Client Launcher is installed, you will be prompted to select your install mode: "Install for me only" or to "Install for all users." If the Vision Client Launcher was already installed, subsequent install attempts are treated as an upgrade and you will not be prompted to select the install mode. This new option will only appear on new launcher installations or after uninstalling a prior version of the installer.
Vision Client Launcher Destination Folder
When installing for "all users," the installer will be placed in the following folder: "%Ignition Installation Directory%\Program Files\Inductive Automation"
When installing for "me only," the installer will be found under the "\AppData\Roaming\Inductive Automation" folder.
The Vision Client Launcher for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS are available on the Home tab of the Gateway Webpage. Use the following steps to do an install of the Vision Client Launcher.
Windows Silent Installations
The Vision Client Launcher (and the Designer Launcher) can be installed on Windows systems from command Iine without any user prompts.
Version 8.0.10 introduced launcher installations for all users. Note that using ALLUSERS may trigger a check from User Account Controls, so you may need administrator access for the following command to offer a truly silent installation:
