Installation for All Users under XP



I have tested PRTG Network Monitor (snmp string vlaue) succesfull today. Is there a way to install PRTG under XP for the ALL USERS Profile? Any other not being an administrative user who has installed the software can't start the software nor heare any sound at all. What to if more than only one user uses this XP PC?

Dear Frank,

to what exactly are you referring? If PRTG is installed on an XP PX, anyone should be able to access at least the web interface with any browser, as the obligatory PRTG components (Server and Probe service) will run under the account "LOCAL SYSTEM" by default, and not any user account.

Best Regards.
