officeGATE Manual

2.2.Installation of officeGATE in a distributed company environment using Group Policy

officeGATE supports Group Policy installation. Group Policy is used to automatically distribute officeGATE setups to the domain users. MSI setups are automatically installed on the user’s computer when signing in, while EXE files are only distributed and the user may decide, if he installs officeGATE or not. This can save enormous time and energy, as the application can be easily installed at-one-go. For more information about Group Policy installations refer to this guide.

Multi-language support is not included in case of GPO-installation. The language of the application will be selected as follows:

  • At first the language of the already installed officeGATE will be checked. If found, it will be applied.
  • If the language setting was not found (i.e officeGATE is installed for the first time), then the Registry will be checked. If the language was found, it will be applied.
  • If the language setting was not found in the Registry, officeGATE will use the language that is set in the MS Outlook of the user.
Hint: You must have system admin rights to install officeGATE using the Group Policy.
