Multi User Systems

in nomacs 3.10.2 we have added a better multi user support because of your feedback.

Basically you can now create default settings that are applied to all user settings after the first start-up. Therefore, you have to export your desired defaults by “Edit > Settings > General > Export Settings” and name them “default.ini“. If you now replace the default.ini in the nomacs install directory, these settings will be applied if a new user starts nomacs for the first time.

HINT: the check for updates option is an issue for some large companies. Creating a default.ini with this content:

[SynchronizeSettings]
checkForUpdates=false
disableUpdateInteraction=true

will disable checking for updates. Additionally, users won’t be able to manually check for updates anymore.

MSI Installer

Since a lot of you were asking for a blind installer and/or an msi installer. We have now created an msi installer with nomacs 3.6 beta. We would be happy if you could test this installer and leave feedback here, so that switching to msi in the next version works smooth.
thanks,
