Verification:installing user & operating user are related

Post by bgsapien » Fri May 19, 2017 9:20 am

Product, version and build: PowerShell Studio 2017 v5.4.138
32 or 64 bit version of product: 32
Operating system: Windows7 Enterprise SP1
32 or 64 bit OS: 32
PowerShell Version: 5

Hello, I just want to know, do I got it right that :
- the "installing user" and the "operating user" are related to run PowerShell Studio.
In other words the best to use PowerShell Studio is the "installing user" and the "operating user" are the same.
- if another user other than the "installing user" wants to use PowerShell Studio, there you will need to copy manually some folders from the
"installing user" to the "operating user's" profile and adjust the user rights accordingly.

No. The installing user doesn't matter. It is typically someone with admin privileges.
The software, one started by the 'operating user' will take care of any per user files and unlocking the license for the 'operating user'.
There is no need for manually copying files under normal circumstances.
There are systems that are so locked down that the normal user cannot even store settings in per application data folders or the per user registry, but that is an entirely different story.
